A week-long comprehensive program where Suzuki students, families, and teachers come to expand and deepen their knowledge and playing. We offer an enriching summer institute led by exceptional Suzuki faculty. Among the classes offered: repertoire, technique, masterclass, reading orchestra, coffee caregiver circle (for Suzuki caregivers), and electives such as music by diverse composers, yoga for musicians, art expressions, and more!

The Omaha Conservatory of Music’s (our home base) outstanding artist-faculty challenge and inspire a student body of nearly 1,000 students in the Omaha metro area through rich programs such as our summer camps, concerts, festivals, outreach education, community events, lessons, and classes.

We believe that the passion for learning combined with dedication to excellence can make music a lifelong source of joy and inspiration for our students, families, and community. Our encouraging environment allows students to gain confidence in their musical abilities through discipline, mastery, and the love of music-making with their friends.
