Housing & Meals

CSI 2020 Information Below...


ON CAMPUS HOUSING is available on a first come first served basis.


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 3 - July 11.
