Suzuki Early Childhood Music Program OPEN HOUSE!SECE
Suzuki Early Childhood Music Program OPEN HOUSE!

Thursday, Oct. 26 at 10:45 am, the Suzuki String School of Guelph will  open its doors to families with children 0-3 years old. SSSG is offering a FREE Suzuki Early Childhood
Education (Suzuki ECE) music class followed by refreshments and Q&A. Suzuki ECE teachers Kelly  Williamson and Carmen Evans will be teaching the class as a team.
In Suzuki ECE, children ages 0-3 participate in weekly group classes with an accompanying adult,  learning a carefully-structured sequence of songs and activities. The program also focuses on the  development of key social skills and physical and cognitive abilities, all in a fun and nurturing  environment.

SSSG Artistic Director Paule Barsalou says, "Our Suzuki ECE program is more than a music program-it  helps parents to strengthen their parenting skills and to notice all the micro-steps of their child's  development from infancy. It also helps socialize babies and toddlers in a safe and collaborative  environment."

Suzuki ECE teacher Kelly Williamson says, "The Suzuki ECE program is suitable for all children. The class  environment offers a mixed-age group so that children will observe and learn from each other. The  interaction builds bonds between parents and children that enhance their learning in later years."
