Prescott, AZ

The Chaparral Suzuki Academy in Prescott, AZ fills a need within the Southwest community for an affordable Suzuki Institute for violin, viola, cello and piano students.

We are smaller and more intimate than most other institutes, and participants will get a chance to know each of the other families. Unique to this institute is the opportunity for violin and piano students to perform together. We also invite local musical artists to present special enrichment classes that frequently go well beyond a traditional music education. Space is limited and typically filled with repeat attendees, so early registration is recommended.


No upcoming events. Please check back later for future events.

Prescott is a historic town at 5300 feet elevation, ideal for those seeking a cooler temperature within Arizona. We have over 500 historic buildings, several museums, and dozens of art galleries. For those who are inclined towards the outdoors, explore over 450 miles of hiking and biking trails, 5 scenic lakes, multiple area campgrounds, and the Prescott National Forest. Here you can go kayaking, rock-climbing, hiking, biking, camping, and even hang-gliding. Both Sedona and the Grand Canyon are an easy day trip from Prescott.
