For the past eight years Robla School District students have studied and learned to play classical violin, viola, and cello from nationally renowned Master Teacher and musician, Ms. Judy Bossuat and her team of masterful graduate students at Sacramento State University. Ms. Bossuat is a certified Suzuki Method expert in the classical music field. Third through sixth graders are exposed to and learn to appreciate a musical genre absent from their everyday life experiences. This Sac State, Robla Education Foundation, Robla School District collaboration has proven to be rewarding for more than 200 students who have participated throughout the years. Cuts in music and art programs afford students so few options to expand their knowledge in these areas or to bridge the link between academics and the arts. Of the two hundred plus elementary school students who have benefited, one committed family stands out, the Gonzalez family.
