Westchester Suzuki Institute 2023
The Westchester Suzuki Institute
"Noble hearts nurtured with love" Shin'ichi Suzuki
For 38 years, the Westchester Suzuki Institute has offered a nurturing environment for Suzuki students to grow musically. Class size is small, which allows all of the teachers to get to know each child, and allows your child to get to know all of the other student participants.
The Westchester Suzuki Institute, sponsored by the Hudson River School of Music, is designed to provide students, parents and teachers with a week of concentrated study in the philosophy and methods of Dr. Shinichi Suzuki.
Institute teachers will work with violin, viola, cello and guitar students, from Pre-Twinkle through Book 10, providing an excellent summer supplement to their studies at home. This week of meeting new people and sharing in the enjoyment of common music goals and intensive instruction is certain to motivate and inspire for months to come.
The Westchester Suzuki Institute is open to students currently studying in the Suzuki Method with a Suzuki-trained teacher.
