Suzuki Institue Classes

  • Violin
  • Viola
  • Cello
  • Piano

We will not offer harp this year.  Harp classes will resume in 2019.  Our piano and harp programs will alternate years; harp on the odd years and piano on the even years.

This year, enrollment is open to students studying violin, viola, cello, and piano with a Suzuki teacher using the Suzuki Method. Students are expected to come prepared with memorized repertoire (click for review lists). PPSI is designed to be a family experience and parents should attend classes with their child and help them prepare for each days assignment. Each student’s registration admits an accompanying adult, free of charge, to all student and parent activities (unless otherwise specified).

Pre-Twinkle: For beginning students who do not yet play all of the twinkle variations fluently. Tuition includes 3 classes; a master class, a group class and Musikgarten.

Twinkle and above: Tuition includes 5 classes.

  • For string instrument students this includes a master class, a repertoire class, a technique class (if appropriate), and 2 enrichments.
  • For piano students this includes a master class, a repertoire class, a piano musicianship class, and 2 enrichments.

Master class – Class with 3-4 students in which each student takes turns receiving one-on-one instruction from a faculty member each day.

Technique class – This class focuses on level appropriate technique in a group setting.

Repertoire class – This group class focuses on repertoire review, ensemble playing and preparation for concert performance.

Enrichment classes – Students may select from a number of enrichments to complete their schedule. See enrichments for desriptions of these classes.

NOTE: Each child will have one free period a day unless you register for an extra enrichment.

All students will perform in a final concert at the end of the week. Daily repertoire classes will prepare pieces for this concert as well as individual ensemble groups. Concert dress is black bottom and white top for string students and dress clothes for all other instruments. Click for review lists.
