Our Suzuki Summer Institute is one of the oldest ongoing institutes in the nation. Join us for the 54th year as we continue a long tradition of quality instruction to students of all ages and levels. Our Institute features special events, concerts, and activities along with inspiring classes young musicians will remember and benefit from throughout the year!

Each year we welcome back our accomplished faculty and a few new faces as well. For our Advanced Violin classes, we welcome Gabe Bolkosky, founder and director of PheonixPhest. He will be our Featured Performer on our special Faculty Celebration Concert on Tuesday, June 12. Our Advanced Program and Chamber faculty also include Dr. Timothy Durbin, violin, Joanna Binford, viola, and Alexander Croxton, cello.

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 and Music City Strings is one of the top string-performance ensembles in the country and will be featured on our Sunday Concert and Play-In.

We also welcome back Crystal Plohman. Her expertise in many styles of fiddling and the Suzuki Method makes her an inspiration to thousands of young players. As a performer, clinician, pedagogue, and composer, 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 2018 Summer Institute will be the highlight of many families' summer events. We hope to see you there!
