Ogontz Suzuki Institute

Ogontz Suzuki Institute
Lisbon, NH

Ogontz Suzuki Institute is a summer music Institute founded more than 25 years ago based on the teaching principles of Dr. Shinichi Suzuki. Located at a historic girls’ camp in New Hampshire’s beautiful White Mountains, Ogontz provides young musicians and their families with master classes, group classes, and orchestral and chamber music opportunities with a caring faculty of Suzuki-trained teachers for an unforgettable experience of creativity, camaraderie, and community.

Practice Pathways is a special, pre-camp session for violin, viola, cello, bass students in Book 7 through the major literature, featuring five days of intensive masterclasses, performance classes, score reading, chamber music readings, discussions on performance preparation and guided practicing. This workshop is for the self-motivated student with a desire to apply and improve their musical and technical abilities. Parents are welcome, but we encourage musical and personal independence. Our talented, experienced and nurturing faculty round out this powerful musical experience.
