Greater Pittsburgh Suzuki Institute

Dear Suzuki Friends: Due to the many uncertainties surrounding the Covid-19 outbreak, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Greater Pittsburgh Suzuki Institute for this year, 2020. We plan to be back and better than ever in 2021, in our same venue, with the same faculty you know and love. In the meantime, keep practicing and find meaning and comfort in your music!

Offering classes and teacher training

The Greater Pittsburgh Suzuki Institute (GPSI), now in it's 18th year, is a relatively small, extremely user-friendly summer music camp for students and teachers of the Suzuki Method. GPSI takes place on the campus of the Winchester-Thurston School in the Shadyside neighborhood of Pittsburgh, PA. We offer a day program for students and teacher trainees, with arrangements at a local suite hotel and Airbnb for those from out of town. This year we will once again offer a buddy program for students ages 7-12 years whose parents are unable to attend with them.

At GPSI, we offer Suzuki Teacher Training on Piano, Violin, Cello, Guitar and Flute. For details on 2020 course offerings, click here.

Buddy Program
Parents are expected to attend GPSI with their children, but some are unable to get away from work. To help those families we are offering a Buddy
Program for children ages 
7 to 12, for an extra fee. Click here for more information.
Basic tuition includes one elective class. Ensembles are included for students in Book 3 and beyond. It is also possible to add extra elective classes for an additional fee.
