A Play-In is meant to motivate students at multi-levels and will be a very exciting opportunity for your child to participate in a class led by Nancy. It will be similar format to our Suzuki weekly cello group classes. There is ample room for parents and other friends and family to join us as audience. This event is open to the greater New York City Suzuki community, so feel free to invite your cello friends from other schools. Children in our introductory programs are invited to attend as well!

Each performer will play through a piece and then Nancy will work with the student for about 15 minutes as she might in a lesson. Since it is geared for an audience, Nancy will discuss issues and teaching points that you and your child can make use of at home.We invite you to come see a window into how teachers work on building students’ technique and musicality.
