Suzuki Sentinel Newsletter

Welcome to MIC's Suzuki e-newsletter. Each month, we'll be sending you the latest news and information from MIC's Suzuki program. For more information about any of the items in this newsletter, please contact your private teacher. You may also contact Avi Friedlander, Director of the Barston Suzuki Center at afriedlander@musicinst.org or Sarah Montzka, Associate Director of the Barston Suzuki Center at smontzka@musicinst.org.


Dear Parents,


During these uncertain times, practicing an instrument might, understandably, be the last thing on your mind. It is precisely during times of upheaval, though, that music can be its most powerful; a source of stability and comfort.


We, the teachers of the Barston Suzuki Center at MIC, are here for you. Behind the scenes, we are exploring creative ways to stay connected and keep the music flowing.


If you need help with practice ideas, tuning or assignments, please do not hesitate to reach out. Hang in there, everybody and keep playing!


Avi Friedlander, Director, Barston Suzuki Center at the Music Institute of Chicago
