Nathan Sutter has run a Suzuki violin program since 2006. He studied Suzuki pedagogy with Cathryn S. Lee. He is a graduate of the Interlochen Arts Academy and the Oberlin Conservatory. Mr. Sutter has taught since 2011 at the Northern California Suzuki Institute. Mr. Sutter directed the Sacramento Waldorf School Elementary Strings and High School Orchestra for 10 years. Mr. Sutter moved back to his hometown of Boise, ID in 2018, and serves on the board of the Idaho Suzuki Association. Mr. Sutter performs with local orchestras including the Boise Philharmonic, and the Boise Serenata Orchestra.

Mr. Sutter is a graduate of a Course of Action called Growing Equitable Music Studios, designed to support music teachers in expanding their studio’s diversity, access, inclusion, and equity pedagogy. The Sutter Suzuki Studio is striving towards functioning as an anti-racist studio, both as a community of people and as a business, through the practices inside and outside of the violin studio. We believe Dr. Suzuki’s vision of “Every child can.” must include racial and economic justice.
