Greater Austin Suzuki Institute brings world-class instructors to our beautiful campus setting in Austin, Texas.
The Young Artist Program is intended to serve as a vehicle to get students ready for conservatory level instruction. It is recommended for students age 12-18 studying in the advanced repertoire of the Suzuki Method or beyond. Students younger than 12 need to be accompanied by an adult. We recommend violin students be performing music at the Suzuki book 6 level or above, viola/cello students at Suzuki book 5 level and above, bass book or above. Students should be fluent readers at the level of early Haydn String Quartets.
The Young Artist Program extends the weekend before the rest of the student Institute, so students have access to longer Masterclasses and Enrichment experiences that serve as pre-professional preparation.
The dates for 2020 are Saturday, July 25-Saturday, August 1.
Students will be asked to come to Institute with advance preparation in the following:
-Polished Solo piece for use in their individual masterclass.
-Memorized Repertoire for their Repertory Class.
-Orchestra and Chamber Music.
