Welcome to Suzuki Strings at River Trails Elementary

 Welcome to a new school year! 2017-2018 is going to be a wonderful year filled with joy, learning, and music! I look forward to the year of hard work ahead!

About the Program

Students enrolled in the Suzuki program at River Trails Elementary have the opportunity to learn to play a stringed instrument as a supplemental part of their school day. Private lessons occur once a week, with an adult or home teacher present, and group lessons occur once a week after school during tutoring time.

Mr. Mattaliano's goal is to give students in the program the tools, technique, and facility they need to use a stringed instrument as vehicle for their indivitual expression and creativity.

Suzuki Mission Statement

We will practice and listen to the Suzuki CD daily, attend all group classes, private lessons and concerts as well as support eachother as we improve our musical skills!

By the end of the 2017-2018 school year, all River Trail Elementary Suzuki students will have met their 6 piece goal.
