What is Suzuki on the Hill?

Powers is excited to offer this week-long summer program for Suzuki students to continue building skills and friendships through concentrated music study and recreation. Enrollment is open to violin, viola, and cello students, from age 6 to advanced players, Book 1 and higher, who currently study with a Suzuki teacher.

The daily schedule will incorporate Suzuki group classes, master classes and supervised practice time, theory, chamber music, art, and recreation. All students will have solo performance opportunities, and will also participate in a final Suzuki Group Recital.

Students have the opportunity to further their skills and love of music in a fun and supportive atmosphere. The week together provides motivation, learning, and enjoyment for all.
