Broussard, LA

The Acadiana Suzuki Strings Institute combines top-notch Suzuki instruction with pure Southern Louisiana charm. Students will have group and master classes, reading classes, world drumming, and can take courses as diverse as fiddling and visual arts. Our faculty, some of whom enjoy international reputations, bring the highest levels of teaching to ASSI and challenge each and every student to reach new levels of ability . When students are not in classes, they can relax and play outdoors amongst 100-year-old live oaks on the campus of the Episcopal School of Acadiana.

The Acadiana Suzuki Strings Institute (ASSI) is held at the Episcopal School of Acadiana in the heart of Cajun Country. We offer electives in visual art, fiddling and world drumming. Students will also inevitably learn the traditional ASSI game of "Smash Ball" during their free time! The ESA campus, with its large live oak trees and landscaped quads, is a peaceful and relaxing environment for students and families.
