Our Suzuki Summer Institute is one of the oldest ongoing institutes in the nation. Join us for the 55th 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 opening Concert and Play-In Sunday, June 9. Our Advanced Program and Chamber faculty also include Dr. Timothy Durbin, violin, Joanna Binford, viola, and Rodney Farrar, cello.

We welcome back our fantastic faculty members who inspire and encourage young musicians across the nation through their home studios and teaching at Institute, workshops, and other events. We are excited to offer two additional Enrichment classes: Viola for Violinists led by Joanna Binford and Beginning Ukulele (instruments available to purchase or bring your own!) led by Timothy Blunk.

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 2019 Summer Institute will be the highlight of many families' summer events. We hope to see you there!

Student preparation is a critical component of a successful Institute. All registrations must be returned by May 1, 2019, to permit adequate time for participants to review and polish the Institute repertoire. Enrollment is limited so register early.

There will be an early bird registration of $75 until April 1st. After April, the registration fee goes to $85 until May 1st.
Any registration postmarked after May 1st will be assessed a $100 registration fee. NO EXCEPTIONS!

Classes are located in the School of Music building on the University of Louisville Belknap campus. Housing is available nearby in the
University residence hall or at hotels, such as along Crittenden Drive. All buildings are air-conditioned and accessible. Several restaurants are within walking distance of the School of Music.
