Summer Suzuki Institutes

Many of our families choose to enhance their musical education by attending a Summer Suzuki Institute. In locations all across the US and Canada, these events offer an incredible combination of Suzuki instruction, artistic enrichment, parent education and fun social events.  We continually hear how families have reinvigorated their music study through these experiences.

More information can be found through the SAA (Suzuki Association of the Americas) website:
