Idaho Suzuki Institute

Idaho Suzuki Institute
Caldwell, ID

Canceled for 2020

The Idaho Suzuki Institute, founded by June Itami, is the 2nd longest running Institute in the USA. We will be celebrating “47″ years. Another year with outstanding Suzuki teacher trainers and faculty.

Idaho Suzuki provides a welcoming atmosphere and a low student-teacher ratio as well as one of the best value, lowest cost institutes available. On campus housing and meals are available for a VERY reasonable rate.

Lots of nearby activities are available before and after such as the National Old Time Fiddler championship in nearby Weiser, Idaho, white water rafting on the Payette, Salmon & Snake rivers, mountains to climb, etc.

Come to Idaho for a memorable Suzuki experience and a great family vacation.
