Included in the Workshop:
Group Suzuki Classes

Students work with a dynamic and engaging clinician, building on their musical techniques and skills while gaining fresh perspectives from a renowned teacher! Classes are grouped by instrument and level. Students will have a chance to play individually and to interact with faculty. They will also prepare repertoire together for the Sunday Play-In.

Masterclass

Students (Lightly Row and up) meet with their instrumental specialist faculty and delve into in-depth work on a Suzuki piece of the student’s choice in a small group.

Enrichment: Folk Songs

Students put their instruments down, broaden their musicianship through folk songs and movement, learn new lyrics to their favorite Suzuki songs, and have fun.

Enrichment: Klezmer Style

Students pick their instruments back up, and learn the modes and rhythms of a lively Eastern European dance tune. Students in Books 4+ may also sign up for the additional Adv. Chamber Ensemble.

Piano Improv

Piano students stretch their creative muscles and gain confidence in the skill of improvisation.

Parent Talks

Insightful conversations, practice advice and community support for your Suzuki parenting journey.

On Sunday afternoon, all students and faculty will gather, first by instrument, then all together, to present their group pieces in a joyous finale.
