Cherry Tree 2018 Headline

The Suzuki Association of the Americas is celebrating spring by nurturing our very own Cherry Blossom Tree, and we need your participation.

All donations made to the SAA Annual Fund will make our tree bloom. Every blossom empowers the SAA to to insure that excellent Suzuki education is widely recognized, sought and provided to the benefit of all peoples of the Americas, with reasonable cost-efficiency.

Every morning new blooms will appear on the tree, reflecting your support, and your name will appear below as an Honorary Gardener (name on your account).

The tree will stop blooming on May 1st, 2018.

Thank you very much for you support!

Suzuki Students at Carnegie Hall

Joan K Kids Carnegie

As Joan Kryzwicki reports, “..three of my students performed on a recital at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall. …a fourth student (performed) who studies with Janet Kaido, another Suzuki piano teacher in Philadelphia. They earned this opportunity by earning a required number of points on a special audition. The recital was sponsored by the Philadelphia Music Teachers Association. It was a beautiful experience for these students and all very exciting.”
