The GWSI is a sub-chapter of the Suzuki Association of the Greater Washington Area (SAGWA), a non-profit volunteer organization devoted to improving children’s lives through music education. Our mission is to inspire an appreciation for the untapped possibilities of children through promoting the understanding and use of the music teaching approach and educational philosophy of Dr. Shinichi Suzuki for the greater happiness of all children.
SAGWA sponsors musical events throughout the year, contributes scholarship support for deserving students, and provides a forum for parents and teachers to share ideas and learn from each other’s experiences.
Now going into our 41st season, the Greater Washington Suzuki Institute has full programs for violin and cello students and partial programs for viola and bass. Offerings include master class lessons, repertory classes, chamber music, 5 orchestras, Scottish fiddling, sessions for students on effective practice, daily recitals, Music Mind Games for beginning students, and lectures for parents and teachers.
