Suzuki Music Preview Day

Saturday, August 26, 2017 - 10:30am
D'Angelo Room 19

Children ages 3 and up are invited to Mercyhurst University on Saturday, Aug. 26, to sample the newest offering from the university’s Sullivan Conservatory of Music: Suzuki music lessons on violin, viola and cello.

Our first series of previews were extremely successful. One additional free session has been scheduled from 10:30 a.m. to noon, during which kids will experience:

  • A free mini recital
  • An instrument petting zoo
  • An introductory lesson/group activity

Two Suzuki-registered teachers are teaming up to launch the program. Lisa Brown, who earned her master’s degree in cello performance from Carnegie Mellon University, is a new adjunct faculty member in Mercyhurst’s D’Angelo Department of Music. She enjoys teaching students of all ages and completed her Suzuki teacher training in 2009 at The School for Strings in New York, studying under Pamela Devenport.

She’ll be joined by Mary Moser, who holds a Master of Music in performance and pedagogy from Arizona State University. She has also trained with many of the leaders in Suzuki education, and believes children have an almost limitless ability to master whatever is presented to them. “If you’re ready to try and learn, then be ready to grow and achieve! And with music... be ready to dream and dance.”
