Los Angeles Suzuki Institute 2017 - Opening for Registration January 20!!!

Hi everyone! The Los Angeles Suzuki Institute is opening for registration January 20th. We hope you have marked your calendars for this special week out in Claremont.

My experience at the Suzuki Institute was awesome! I made new friends and got to spend time with kids who play Suzuki piano just like me. My favorite part was Dalcroze. It helped me with rhythm and precision.
— Iris, age 9
The camaraderie that develops between the kids is a joy to watch. By the end of the week, they are playing together, practicing together, supporting each other, and rooting for each other! This kind of musical friendship is something that can only happen at a Suzuki Institute summer camp program.
— Kelly
On the first day a wise teacher commented that ‘music friends make the best friends’ and that summarized most of our week. To watch the kids bond so closely and quickly was remarkable. In addition, as a parent to observe our children excel and grow in such a nurturing environment was a treasure!
— Ann, mother of Ellen (6)
The kids seem to have a great time... All the teachers are clearly devoted to Suzuki.
— Sarah, parent
