PREPARATION

Each student should review repertoire up to and including his/her current piece and come prepared to play a polished piece for the first Master Class meeting. The teacher can readily assess the student’s needs by hearing a technically and musically mature piece.

PARENTS

Parental participation is essential to the success of the Suzuki method. Parents attend classes with their children and help them to prepare for the next day’s classes. All children must be accompanied by a parent or another responsible, interested adult. It is optimal that there be one adult per child. Childcare is not available during DFW WOW. Parent seminars are scheduled during daily play-ins.

 TEACHERS

Private teachers are welcome and encouraged to attend and observe student classes at no charge.  Teachers, please check-in with Directors in DFW WOW Office prior to observations.
