Our Faculty

Students who study violin, viola, cello, or bass by the Suzuki approach, from pre-Twinkle through advanced level, participate in the Institute as a supplement to year-round lessons. They enjoy individual and group instruction, and are motivated to be in the company of other students and families who value and actively pursue musical, person, and talent development.

Teachers attend the Institute to learn the Suzuki Method or to refresh, re-inspire, and expand their teaching skills.
