STEVENS POINT - Watching her grandsons, Ben and Marty, learn to play in harmony with a large group of strangers, Jeanne Wieland knew the outdoor concert was a proud moment.
"Nice to see them develop the confidence in their abilities," Wieland said.
Wieland drove up to Stevens Point from northwestern Illinois to join her family at the UW-Stevens Point's "American Suzuki Institute."
The week-long camp brings together more than 1,000 students and families to learn the Suzuki method.
"There are so many ways to get the kids focused on what they're doing and if they, like normal kids, get off they are able to bring them back," Wieland said of the camp's instructors. "It's not painful."
