The Centenary Suzuki Institute

June 5-8, 2024

A Suzuki Institute is a specialized summer music education program inspired by the Suzuki philosophy. Institutes typically offer intensive summer music training for students, parents, and teachers who follow the Suzuki approach. During the Institute, participants will engage in daily lessons, group classes, performances, and various musical activities, providing an immersive and enriching experience. These institutes are held globally and we are excited to offer one here in Shreveport!

The Centenary Suzuki Institute will be a full 4-day program. Several nationally recognized, professional musicians with Suzuki training will work with our students for masterclasses, group classes, and orchestra. Each student will have 4-5 hours of classes everyday. All advanced students will additionally be placed in an orchestra. We also offer extra classes such as fiddling and choir.

We accept students for VIOLIN, VIOLA and CELLO, for all Suzuki Book levels and beyond. However, at this time, we do not plan to offer a Pre-Twinkle class, the requirement for a student to be enrolled is to have Lightly Row polished.

Registration is now open!

If you have any questions regarding the Suzuki Institute, please contact Mr. Charles Regauer at cregauer@centenary.edu

You will get the best of both worlds: with Suzuki Group Classes, Masterclasses, Orchestra and a Chamber Music Group. It is an intense music program, for five days (June 4-8), available only for Suzuki Violin, Viola or Cello students in Books 4 and above.
