Sounds of Strings at Summit Place
On Thursday, Dec. 19, students from Deakins Suzuki Strings performed for the residents of Summit Place on Daniel Island. Instructor Lisa Deakins led the group and Wando High School music teacher Derek Deakins accompanied on guitar and violin. The students range in age from 8 to 12 and played a variety of music, including classical works and holiday favorites. These students study music using the Suzuki method, which is a unique form of music study that includes learning by listening, beginning at an early age, and parental involvement. Lisa and Derek also performed Christmas classics as a duo. Visit www.lisadeakins.com for more information about Suzuki music study.
