The very first Suzuki flute workshop was held in Arusha, Tanzania this March.
The workshop was held over two weeks and included a flute care clinic and a final celebration concert. Eleven flutists of varying ages participated, four of whom began with Kelly at the workshop. The focus was on exploring group class possibilities with a group of flutists diverse ages and levels; the Arusha group ranged in age from 10 years to 50-odd, and in level from beginner (no experience) to intermediate players. Kimbra Dixon, who has spearheaded the establishment of a Suzuki violin school in Arusha as well as the flute workshop, has dreams of one day having an international Suzuki institute in Tanzania.
