Another year with outstanding Suzuki teacher trainers and faculty, a welcoming atmosphere and a low student-teacher ratio. 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.
