The Advanced Suzuki Program
The Advanced Suzuki Institute at Stanford provides an opportunity for advanced and advancing Suzuki and traditional students to deepen their skills, guided by an internationally acclaimed faculty in a supportive and motivational environment. Throughout the five days on the Stanford campus, students will receive daily one on one guidance in master class settings along with technique classes, orchestra, advanced electives, and either a repertoire class or our chamber music program.
The program is open to violin, viola, and students in Book 4 - 10 and above and cello students in Book 3 - 10 and above. An online teacher recommendation from your private teacher helps assure each student receives proper class placement.
Non Suzuki Students
Traditional students who have reached the requisite playing level are welcome at the Advanced Suzuki Institute. Traditional students are encouraged to register for the chamber music program to support a shared repertoire in all classes that they attend. Only the repertoire classes consistently use Suzuki repertoire. Other classes, after the requisite level, mainly focus on new repertoire and exercises.
We recommend traditional students have reached the levels equal to or beyond the repertoire listed below.
Violin - Concerto in g minor by A. Vivialdi
Viola - Concerto in G Major by G.P. Telemann
Cello - Sonata in e minor, Op. 1, No. 2 by Marcello
