Summer Teacher Training and Master Classes

Our annual summer teacher training and master classes provide an opportunity for students, parents, and teachers to study together with Suzuki teaching specialists. The aim is to foster a supportive environment and maintain an enthusiastic and positive attitude toward music. It provides teachers with further training through observation of student and teacher lessons and discussion of the Suzuki approach with a teacher trainer. The workshop is one week long, and is held in late July or early August.

The 2019 St. Louis Piano Institute will be held from July 22 – 26, 2019.  Piano Unit 5 teacher training will be offered as well as student master classes and a Piano Basics workshop.
