This year once again we are offering a program that will allow students ages 7-12 whose parents can't stay with them the entire day to attend the institute under the supervision of a teen-age Suzuki student. There will be two younger students in the care of each counselor. The students will be supervised from 9:00am to 4:00pm each day. At least three hours of the time will be taken up with classes covered by our basic tuition. In order to fill the remaining hours, parents may wish to enroll their children in one or two extra electives at $70 each. There will also be time for practicing and time to run off steam outdoors at the playground and playing field on the campus. The cost for the Buddy Program will be $150 per child for the week, in addition to the regular institute tuition. Parents will need to attend with their children on Sunday afternoon, August 4, to help them orient to the campus and meet their counselors. We will require interested parents to fill out a detailed form with more information. Please e-mail us at if interested.
