Reinstate Suzuki Strings In Jamestown Elementary Public Schools

111 Signatures Goal: 1,000

Dr. Suzuki, a Japanese violinist and educator believed that every child if properly taught was capable of a high level of musical achievement. He also made it clear that the goal of such musical education was to raise generations of children with "noble hearts". There is emphasis on playing from a very young age. The parent of the young student is involved. The teachers are trained and certified in the Suzuki method. It emphasizes learning music by ear which follows Dr. Suzuki's observation that a child learns to speak before he learns to read. The method encourages regular playing in groups and frequent public performance so performing becomes natural and enjoyable.


We would like to ask the JPS Board of Education president and all board members to reinstate this vital Suzuki Strings Program in kindergarten through elementary, in the Jamestown public schools BECAUSE EVERY CHILD IN THE DISTRICT DESERVES THIS FINE OPPORTUNITY.

THANK YOU,

SINCERELY,
