Our Suzuki Summer Institute is one of the oldest ongoing institutes in the nation. Come and join in the celebration as we continue to change and evolve in our 53rd year!! Special events, concerts, and activities.You don¹t want to miss this special institute year. This summer¹s Institute promises to continue a long tradition of quality instruction to students of all ages and levels. 

We have a very special faculty line-up. For our advanced violin camp, we welcome Bryan Hall from the University of Alaska Fairbanks. He will be our Featured Performer on our opening Concert on Sunday, June 11. Also, we have Dr. Timothy Durbin, violin, Joanna Binford, viola, Alexander Croxton, cello, and William Kossler, guitar. 

We welcome back Dana Meyer. Founder of the Music City Strings in 2005 in Franklin, Tennessee. Her studio is based on the Suzuki method of teaching. Music City Strings is one of the top string-performance ensembles in the country. 

We also welcome back Crystal Plohman. She is no stranger to the wide world of fiddling styles or to the Suzuki Method. As a performer, clinician, pedagogue, composer and inspiration to thousands of young players, she has dedicated the past twenty-five years to sharing her knowledge across the fiddling spectrum. She is currently Senior Artist Teacher of Suzuki Violin and Fiddling at the Blair School of Music at Vanderbilt University.

Our 2017 Summer Institute is shaping up into a Fun Summer Event. We hope to see you there!
