Title

Designed for the highly motivated student, this two-week session provides a more intensive study routine than the regular Suzuki Student Institute.

Early audition submission is highly recommended. Students must be at least at the level of violin Book 7, viola book 5, or cello Book 6. There is a limit of 32 violin students, 12 viola students, and 12 cello students.

The schedule includes the following:

  • five one-hour masterclass lessons
  • repertory classes
  • technique classes with emphasis on scales, arpeggio series, shifting, double-stop studies, various bow strokes, and practice techniques
  • performance class
  • practice boot camp
  • guest artist recital and master class with Yumi Kendall (cello) and Cory Lee (violin)

Students enrolled in the advanced repertoire program will be expected to practice between two and three hours each day, depending on the age and level of the individual. Each student should prepare solo material that will form the basis for coaching sessions at the institute. New solo material may also be presented.
