Introduction of the Suzuki Method of music in the city of Santiago de Cuba

The first reference of the Suzuki method in Cuba dates back to 2007, thanks to the initiative of the cello teacher, Jacqueline Jardines López (Guadeloupe), a graduate of the Suzuki Method at the Suzuki Institute in Lyon (France). Mrs. Jardines had the pedagogical need to share her knowledge with her Cuban musician colleagues from the Orquesta Sinfónica de Oriente (OSO) and the teachers of the schools of artistic education of the city of Santiago de Cuba: Ignacio Mora, Jana Marieta Perdigón and Cecilia D. Rosales

The Suzuki method of music is a method to learn to play a musical instrument. It is currently collected in books and recordings for piano, violin, viola, flute, flute, cello, harp, guitar, double bass, chant, charango, Tarka, mandela and ocarina. It is a method more oriented to children, but also very good for adults who want to start learning to play one of these instruments.

Several workshops have taken place over the last 11 years in Santiago de Cuba and that we list below:
