Every October the Suzuki Association of Washington State (SAWS) invites students and teachers from all over our state to a two-day festival at the beautiful Central Washington University campus in Ellensburg. Students and their families attend on Saturday, for a day filled with lots of exciting and motivating classes for students of all ages and abilities, as well as opportunities to make new Suzuki friends. I am looking forward to attending the Friday teacher workshop, and I am excited that eight students from our studio will be going to the student festival on Saturday! If you are registered to attend this year, or are thinking about going next year, you can find the schedule and additional information on the SAWS website
