Humor from the Suzuki Studio

SandraDavis CountBachula

Did you ever wonder…?

How can I connect my students with a greater music community? What resources are there nearby for Parent Education? Are there scholarships available to attend national SAA events? Where can I participate in student performances with a varitey of Suzuki instruments?

The answer is your local Chapter! Available to you with your membership in the SAA in select areas in the country. These dynamic organizations are here to connect, educate, support, celebrate, and honor our Suzuki community.

Imagine this journey of Suzuki music is an enormous cruise ship. SAA is steering the ship to exciting destinations, and your Chapter is the cruise director who helps you and your studio stay filled, connected, energized. If it is the SAA that makes sure there is food on the ship, then it is the Chapter who shows you where the dining hall is.
