The Suzuki Valhalla Institute offers high quality instruction at all levels in a small program in a tiny village in the midst of pristine mountain wilderness. The beauty of the natural setting, the friendliness of the village and the Institute, and the well-oiled organization of the program are all hallmarks of the SVI.
