The New England Suzuki Institute is open to students of violin, viola, cello, piano,
guitar and their parents who work with a Suzuki teacher and study the Suzuki repertoire.
Traditionally trained students of piano and guitar are easily incorporated into the
program, and traditionally trained teens may participate in the Teen Artist Program.
Daily offerings include:
- Core curriculum (master class and repertoire class)
- Enrichment classes
- Parent pow-wow
- Evening Activities
Because NESI is committed to offering a comprehensive and quality curriculum for all
ages in an atmosphere of individual attention, registration will be limited to 110 students
on a first-come, first-served basis. Early registration is encouraged as we filled quickly
last year, long before the deadline of June 1, 2014.
Core curriculum at NESI consists of a shared master class and a group repertoire class.
Enrichment classes are electives from which two or more can be chosen.
Student recitals are held daily at 4 pm.
There is a 'Parent Pow-Wow'.
Arts and Crafts are held daily.
Recreation is available at the Alfond Recreation Center which houses a rock wall and gym.
Lakefront swimming in Sebago Lake is a popular activity. Evening activities include the
Sunday night play-in, Monday movie night, Tuesday story telling and music performance,
Wednesday faculty recital, and Thursday contradance.
2014 Fiddle Music is now available.
