The Idaho Suzuki Institute provides the opportunity for students, parents and teachers to further their understanding of the philosophy and teachings of Dr. Shinichi Suzuki. The concentrated form of the student classes stimulate and motivate while reinforcing the skills developed in the normal course of study at home. The Institute also allows parents to see the success of the Suzuki approach on a grand scale and to enhance the skills they need to help their children learn.
Teachers can begin or continue their study of Suzuki method philosophy and pedagogy.

Debbie Hynes began violin lessons at the age of 11. During her high school years she played in the Boise Philharmonic Orchestra, and continued playing and studying music at Brigham Young University. After graduating with a Bachelor of Music Education, Debbie taught Strings in the Davis County Schools (Utah). Other orchestra experience includes Salt Lake Symphony (Utah), Plymouth Symphony (Michigan) and the Bellevue Philharmonic (Washington) where she led the String Enrichment Program for Schools. Debbie played 1st violin in the Crescendo Quartet (Seattle area) for 10 years. She now resides in Boise where she teaches orchestra at the Jr. High and Elementary levels, and has a private violin/viola studio. Debbie and her husband Gordon have 6 children. One of her loves is playing in a family quartet with her daughters.

Connie Hadlock, of Caldwell, Idaho, studied with June Itami, Walter Cerveny, and Lamar Barrus. She began teaching in 1977 and has been very active in music and the arts in our community. In 2005, she assisted in starting the first orchestra at Vallivue High School. For the past 23 years Connie has been an advisor/coach for a high school auxiliary/dance team. Connie also taught fifth through eighth grade orchestra for the past three years in the Caldwell School District. Although recently semi-retiring, she continues teaching private violin/viola lessons as well as performing in various ensembles and local orchestras. Involved with the Suzuki movement for many years, Connie currently serves on the faculty at Suzuki Institutes in Utah, California, Montana, and Idaho and served as co-director as well as director of the Idaho Suzuki Institute for a number of years in the past. Along with her husband Layne, she loves spending time with their six children and 20 grandchildren.
