Teacher Institute

General Information and Requirements

Daily sessions include lectures and videotapes, repertoire study, technical study, observation of the Suzuki Student Institute, and informal chamber music. The schedule is intensive and may include some evening sessions.

All participants are expected to prepare the music in the books to be studied to the point of fluent performance -- preferably from memory. Additionally, participants should be conversant with the ideas presented in Suzuki's Nurtured by Love. All participants will be performing in class and are expected to provide their own instruments. It is recommended that participants bring a tape recorder and a notebook to all sessions. Please note that 100% attendance is required for registering the course.
