The Fairbanks School of Talent Education will be offering the “Every Child Can” class on February 7. This class is necessary for teachers who wish to pursue training in the Suzuki method. It is also highly recommended (and required by many Suzuki teachers) for parents who wish to enroll their students in a Suzuki teacher’s studio.
If you would like to find out more there will be an informational meeting on January 12 at 7:00 at the Montessori School on 30th Ave. This meeting will include information on the Fairbanks School of Talent Education, the Suzuki method, and the “Every Child Can” class.
The class will be held on Saturday, February 7, from 9:00-4:00 at Zion Lutheran Church, 2982 Davis Road. There will be a one hour lunch break.
If you wish to take the class you will need to register by January 24th. You can fill out the registration form (posted below) and mail or hand it to Nancy Morgan. If you do mail the form be sure its mailed by January 17th in order for Nancy to receive it by the 24th.
The FSTE Halloween Concert was on Thursday, Oct. 30th this year. Each class presented a piece or two. The advanced violins, led by Dr. Gail Johansen dressed as the red-haired priest, Vivaldi, played a piece called “Magic”. The book 2/3 class dressed as farm characters and played “The Scared Farmer” (originally “Happy Farmer”). The flutes played and dressed a gypsy theme. The cellos showed off their sound effects. And Nancy Morgan’s book 1 class did various violin sounds to accompany the “5 Little Pumpkins” poem. All in all it was a fun and creative evening!

Every February we take time to celebrate the progress our youngest violinists are making. When each one reaches the middle of book 1 and can play “Perpetual Motion” they are invited to perform their polished Twinkles.
The group performs all the Twinkle Variations and Theme and then are presented with a certificate which lists all 25 skills they acquired in learning the Twinkles.
Thank-you to Nancy Morgan, Peggy Swartz, and Dorli McWayne who led the violin/violists, cellists, and flutes.
