BENEFITING: Suzuki School of Newton, Inc.
The Suzuki School of Newton is a non-profit community music school. Donate to our need-based James Thornblade Memorial Scholarship Fund!
Dr. Suzuki was a Japanese violin teacher and founder of the Suzuki method of music education. His intent was to cultivate the traits in his students, such as compassion and goodwill, that would lead to them growing up to be "good citizens of the world". The Playathon is a fundraiser that helps our students raise scholarship money for other children who wouldn't otherwise have had access to music lessons at the Suzuki School of Newton. Students collect sponsors to participate in a 10-day intense practice challenge culminating in a public performance at the Chestnut Hill Mall on June 11th.
