STEVENS POINT — Introduce your child to playing an instrument during a free event for the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point’s Aber Suzuki Center.
Held from 10 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Aug. 25, at the Central Wisconsin Children’s Museum on Main Street in Stevens Point, the event offers an “Instrument Petting Zoo” where children can try several different instruments and collect a passport stamp for a prize at the end. Families can also meet center faculty and listen to performances by current Suzuki students.
There are openings in cello, harp, guitar, viola, violin and voice, as well as early childhood classes, which offer children from birth to age 4 experiences in singing, playing rhythm instruments and loving music with their parents. The Suzuki Method encourages music study in a nurturing environment, with parents working closely with their children.
Anyone who registers for lessons at the event will get a $50 tuition rebate for fall lessons. For more information, go to www.uwsp.edu/suzuki or call 715-346-3033.
