This is probably not a typical photo you might find on a blog about a cross-country family RV road trip, but I wanted to give a picture of what we are doing this week while we are not posting as frequently. We may not be cruising the highways and seeing the sights, but what a wonderful opportunity it is to be here with so many dedicated young musicians and we are grateful for the chance to work with outstanding teachers from around the country. Each year at this institute, our kids voluntarily join many of the other students in making the commitment to practice every single day, year round. The guitars and classical music CD's travel with us wherever we go. They have played in campsites, hotels, and airports around the world. The Colorado Suzuki Institute experience is their energizer, their icing on the cake, their light at the end of the tunnel that keeps them going on their journey of musical study.
