The Oregon Suzuki Institute

The Oregon Suzuki Institute

is a week-long program held every summer at George Fox University. The institute provides an opportunity for Suzuki students to receive lessons, perform, and take classes in order to reinforce their ongoing studies at home.

In 2021 all our teacher workshops will be online. Decisions about student classes will be made in early March, depending on safety considerations, & may be held in person, online, or a hybrid of the two.

Teacher Workshops:

The Institute provides workshops for teachers to begin learning to teach according to the Suzuki Philosophy. The workshops also help current Suzuki teachers to expand their skills. See the current offerings below. The Advanced ChamberMusic Workshop is a seven-day program for advanced string and piano students, age 14 and up, with strong note reading skills. Students may enroll as a pre-formed group or they will be assigned to an ensemble.
