Please know that all SSSG 2019/20 registrations are due  May 10.

Late registrations make the scheduling process of both private & group classes for the whole school very difficult & delayed.  We appreciate your efforts with this.

Cello faculty announcementteacher
It is with excitement that we would like to announce the hiring of Dr. Carey Cheney as our new full-time cello teacher. Carey is an amazing, creative and experienced Canadian Suzuki teacher trainer.  Many of you met her when she was in Guelph to adjudicate at the Kiwanis Festival a few years ago, as well as at SOSI.  She compiled, edited, arranged and composed the pieces for the 8-volume collection of cello pieces entitled "Solos for Young Cellists". This collection is used and loved by countless cello teachers and students all over the world. Carey and her husband, Elliott, have a large teaching studio in  Salt Lake City, UT.  Carey has been living in the US for over 30 years and wants to come back to Canada to live closer to her family in Toronto. 
Unfortunately, due to extenuating circumstances which have arisen recently, Carey won't be able to move to Guelph for the start of the 2019-20 school year and has to delay her starting date until September 2020. Also, unfortunately, Sandy Kiefer is unable to stay for another year. Happily, our wonderful teachers, Andrea Cook, David Evenchick and Amber Ghent have agreed to teach the affected students for the 2019-20 school year. We are very grateful to them for being so flexible and supportive of our students and our new faculty member. 
This coming Sunday, David's students will be going ahead with a pot-luck dinner and concert in his honour. This event will be at the GYMC from 6 pm to 8 pm. This is to celebrate David's contribution to our school and recognize that his role will be changing. If you would like to attend the concert, it will be starting at 7 pm, in the recital hall.
