The New England Suzuki Institute is open to both 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 can be chosen.
Student recitals are held daily at 4 pm.
Parent pow-wows are held daily and cover a range of topics.
Arts and Crafts are held daily.
Recreation is available at the Alfond Recreation Center which houses a full Olympic size
swimming pool, rock wall and gym. Lakefront swimming in Sebago Lake is a popular
activity. Evening activities include the Sunday play-in benefit concert, Monday story
telling and music performance, Tuesday family movie, Wednesday faculty recital, and
