You are invited to attend the Memphis Suzuki Institute, one of the first established Suzuki institutes in the nation. All classes are conducted in an atmosphere that emphasizes the principles of Dr. Suzuki.

Children attend daily semi-private lessons (during which each student receives focused attention from an expert teacher), group lessons, ensemble classes, performances, and related musical enrichment classes.

Parents are able to see Suzuki teaching in action through observation of their children’s lessons and classes, experience the Suzuki philosophy at work, and gain reinforcement from other parents.

Teachers have the opportunity to take SAA (Suzuki Association of the Americas) approved teacher training courses, observe students studying with expert guest clinicians, and gain insights into their own teaching.

Registration is limited and is offered on a “first-come, first-served” basis. Early registration is encouraged to guarantee acceptance.
