Students should come prepared to present a polished piece during the first class. When it is not their turn, they will observe the other student lessons. Parents are expected to attend this class with their student to take notes, observe, and help their student prepare for the next day’s classes.

TECHNIQUE a group class that provides an opportunity for students to improve tone, intonation, bowing, vibrato and shifting depending on their level.

Traditional string students who are not attending Institute for the full day, may wish to participate on an “Enrichment Only” basis (please use registration form to register).

Repertoire List

The Suzuki Institute experience relies upon a deep and thorough knowledge of all learned repertoire. Students are strongly encouraged to review all of the books they have studied and to be well prepared with any previously learned piece in the Suzuki repertoire. Instructors will choose freely from pieces in the Suzuki sequence when working with both the technique and repertoire classes. Your institute experience will be much more satisfying if you review and polish in the months before institute.
