Returning in 2022.

The Greater Pittsburgh Suzuki Institute is a full-service small institute located on the campus of an independent school in the Shadyside neighborhood of Pittsburgh, PA. We offer a student institute and teacher training courses on cello, flute, guitar, piano, and violin. We have arranged for very reasonable rates at a suite hotel within walking distance of the institute that offers many amenities, as well as recommendations for nearby airbnb facilities. We welcome students of violin, viola, cello, flute, guitar, and piano.

GPSI Scholarships for Cello, Flute, and Guitar Students

For Students, Amount: Basic tuition of $200, Application due: June 1
We offer scholarships for cello, flute, and guitar students that enable 3 students of each of those instruments who have not received the scholarship in previous years to attend GPSI for $200. That would cover the basic tuition, including masterclasses, group classes, and one elective. There is an additional charge for extra electives. The scholarships are awarded in the order that completed registrations from those requesting them are received, and priority is given to students who are playing in the Suzuki books being offered in the teacher training unit courses. Call us at (412) 414-1156 if you are interested.
