Celebrating its 46th year, the Greater Washington Suzuki Institute is looking forward to offering student programs in person in Alexandria, Virginia. This year we will offer classes for Violin, Cello, Viola, and Flute. Programs will include masterclasses, repertoire classes, orchestra, musicianship and music games, fiddling and chamber music programs. Special guest artist appearances, advanced artist level programs, faculty performances and student highlight performances plus talks for Suzuki parents will round out our weeklong celebration fostering collaborative music making, friendships with music students around the world, and a nurturing learning environment.

Teacher programs will be available in person and online. Our teacher trainees will study with our stellar teacher trainers to earn SAA approved training and will have the opportunity to observe our guest clinicians teaching students as part of the training.
