We regret to announce that Montana Suzuki Institute 2022 has been cancelled. Check back here in January 2023 for information on future MSI events.

For July 2022, we are planning an in-person event for violin students (pre-twinkle to advanced) and Teacher Training: Every Child Can! and Violin Unit 1.

Our Suzuki faculty are experienced master teachers from across the country. Enrichment courses, led by local specialists and artists, include ensemble, art, fiddling, kindermusik and African drumming.

Our Institute is hosted on the scenic campus of the University of Montana by the Missoula Symphony Association. Students, families and faculty are able to take advantage of affordable University housing and meals and enjoy exploring beautiful Missoula. With opportunities for hiking, biking, rafting, visiting Splash water-park and much more(!), we look forward to welcoming you for a full week of music and fun!
