Just a somewhat random sub-set of the Suzuki kids here in town, after the recent Performance Party (a.k.a. casual recital). These kids come in all shapes, sizes, musical levels, ages and personalities. And yet they support each other unconditionally, feel connected, enjoy being together, know and accept each other’s quirks and enjoy watching each other grow and increase their abilities. “Creating Learning Community” is the Suzuki Association of the Americas’ slogan. I think these kids are doing so.
