The Calgary Suzuki Summer Institute will return to the

Mount Royal Conservatory during the summer of 2018

Please check back for updated information in early 2018

 

A Summer Institute can be one of the most inspiring and rewarding experiences for a Suzuki family. Teachers, parents and children are immersed in an environment of listening, performing, observing and being challenged with new ideas. The shared experiences develop new friendships and provide motivation that lasts throughout the year.

2016 is a great year to consider attending a Summer Institute in Calgary. The dollar difference serves as an amazing discount to our American friends!  

Come experience an educational holiday at the Gateway to the Canadian Rocky Mountains in Calgary, Alberta.

This Year's Feature Activities

Daily classes are arranged according to age and level of playing. Students will participate in a combination of three daily classes:

  • Master Classes - Individual lessons in a master class setting (3-4 in a class)
  • Enrichment Classes (Choral, Bells, Percussion)
  • Group Classes - Instrument Specific
  • Ensemble, Transfer Orchestra or Transfer Instrument (Teen/Advanced Program)
  • Parent Workshops and Discussion Forums
  • Feature recitals and concerts
  • Social events and time to share ideas and experiences with other families.

Practice rooms are available for individual study.

The Calgary Suzuki Summer Institute follows the Suzuki model and therefore a parent, preferably the practicing parent, must accompany their children to master classes and be present to guide their children through the day.

The Teen/Advanced program does not require parental supervision throughout the day but parents are welcome to attend with their teen.
