Are there any plans concerning summer institutes? It now looks as if we may be in this for the long haul and people need to begin making plans.

Most of what we do could be done on line via Skype or some other program. Student observations could be done with videos of teacher trainers working with their own students. Any thoughts on this? The only component we would miss would be the ensembles and the concerts, plus the face to face contact with other teachers, etc.

Students would miss the value of attending the institutes, but at least teacher training would not be interrupted.

The word from American Suzuki Institute is that is will go on as planned. My daughter successfully auditioned for Interlochen and they have repeatedly communicated that the summer camp will go on. Beyond those two, I don’t know.

Of course, much is not known about what will happen to disease incidence. If we can all hold out for another several weeks, then summer plans may be realized.
