Student Program

June 28 - July 3, 2020

 

We regret to inform you that due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and concern for the health and safety of our students, parents, and faculty, we have decided to cancel the Chicago Suzuki Institute for the summer of 2020. This includes all Short-Term Teacher Training Courses, Every Child Can, Student, Chamber and Advanced Programs. No payments were processed for the institute from any registrations received.

 

The Music Institute will be offering an online student experience for the original institute dates of Mon, June 29 -  Fri, July 3. The Music Institute of Chicago Virtual Suzuki Festival will offer masterclasses, group classes, and enrichment courses from our renowned faculty. More detailed camp and registration information are posted on main CSI page and under CSI Registration Forms & Downloads.

 

We wish for you and your family to remain safe and healthy this summer, and to continue keeping music a daily part of your routine. We hope to see you back for CSI 2021, which will be held from July 4 - July 9 for Student Program. 

 

 

 

 

The Student Program is for Suzuki violin, viola, cello and piano students of any age and at all levels beginning with (Pre-twinkle).  A hallmark of the Chicago Suzuki Institute is the depth of teaching experience each faculty member brings to his/her classes. All core instrumental classes are taught by members of our remarkable faculty of Suzuki specialists from around the world. The student program includes three levels:
Pre-twinkle
, Book One and Book Two & Beyond.
