We Make Musicians.


You are cordially invited to participate in a very special event that will be taking place this fall. As part of a Suzuki unit 1 teacher training course, Margot Jewell will be teaching a number of masterclass style individual lessons that will be observed by the workshop participants. 

When: Sunday September 22 and Sunday October 20

Where: Upper Beaches Music School, 2077A Danforth Ave., Toronto (across the street from the Woodbine subway station).  Free street parking is available on Sundays (check signs)

What: Your children will attend for one hour, where they will have a 15-20 minute lesson with Margot Jewell and will observe several other students’ lessons. All the students will be engaged and involved throughout the hour and they also learn from watching each other. They should consult with their home teacher and be ready to play a warm up and one polished (memorized and played fluently) piece from book 1. They should be comfortable with being observed by a group of about 10-15 people (including the workshop participants, the  other children participating and their parents).  Your child’s teacher is also welcome to come to observe the masterclass where their student is being taught.  

Cost: These  lessons will be free of charge 

Who: These classes are open to any child from a brand new beginner through to someone studying up to the middle of book 2.

Why: Your child will benefit from Margot Jewell's 40+ years of teaching children, her insights gained from studying with Shinichi Suzuki in Japan in 1985  as well as her experience of training teachers.
How to register: Please fill out the form below by September 18.
