Event Description

GWSI offers students studying violin, cello, viola and bass an opportunity to supplement their musical education by enjoying a week of individual and group instruction in the company of students and families who value and actively pursue musical, personal and talent development. GWSI students range in age from 4 to 18 years, and in experience level from Pre-Twinklers and Twinklers who are just starting their Suzuki studies to advanced students who have mastered all ten Suzuki books. They include violinists, cellists and violists who are studying using the Suzuki approach, as well as bass players who have been training by any method. Parents play an active role in the GWSI student program and all children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult.

The string programs offer an individual lesson in Master Class style, a group Repertory Class and one or two additional music enrichment classes based on advancement level.  Master Class Lessons for advanced students are small (including 3 rather than 4 students).  In addition, students are encouraged to attend the morning meeting, practice help with GWSI faculty and afternoon recitals given by guest clinicians.
