OPSA Suzuki group class outside

With a pandemic broiling, masked, outdoor group class is where we’ve found our groove in Oak Park, IL. The kids love seeing each other and we can still play together. Once violins were put away, we even had a fun round of music theory games involving squirting water on the garage. It was a blast and the smiles and energy from the kids was entirely worth it.
