On this webpage you will find information about the Stephen Bondy Guitar Studio! By exploring the links above you learn about the Suzuki Method, the many benefits of music study through the Suzuki Method and what it takes to join the ranks of the tens of thousands of families already involved in the Suzuki Method.
This has been a fantastic year in the studio! I accompanied 8 of my students to Columbus, GA this past summer for the Guitar Foundation of America convention and competition. My advanced group, the "Mile High Guitar Ensemble" won a spot in their Youth Ensemble Showcase concert. They played beautifully! Check out their performance on YouTube! We are lucky enough to be going into the studio in November to record their GFA repertoire, and maybe another tune or two to be used as a promo for the studio.
Our annual 'Coffee House' performance was in late August and we held it at 910Arts Events Gallery. It was a great evening of classical guitar repertoire from outside the Suzuki method. Students played music by Joep Wanders, Villa-Lobos, Eduardo Sainz de la Maza, Jose Ferrer, and of course we managed to fit in some Beatles. The level of playing was very high! Congratulations to all our students.
For families interested in joining the studio, please contact me through the contact page. I will likely be adding a handful of new young ones in fall of 2012, so you'll want to get on the waiting list soon! If you just can't wait, please contact my friend Joe Beninghof who teaches a couple of days a week in the Park Hill area.
If you are interested in learning more about Suzuki Guitar and the Stephen Bondy Guitar Studio, please peruse these pages and drop me an email from the contact page if you have any questions. The best way to learn about it is in person, and visitors are always welcome to drop in to a group class or private lesson. Please contact me in advance (a day or so is generally fine) and I'll let you know where and when to drop by to observe!
The Stephen Bondy Guitar Studio is located in Denver Colorado at Washington Park United Methodist Church, at 1955 East Arizona Avenue. For more complete directions, click here.
