welcome

Come to Canada’s largest Suzuki Institute, offering programs for all ages. Explore the complete range of string and piano programs. SOSI is an annual six-day learning experience for junior to advanced students of all ages, including Adult Suzuki students. Student programs in violin, viola, cello, bass, and piano include semi-private lessons, group activities (repertoire classes, reading ensemble classes, or orchestra), enrichment classes, exciting optional classes, play-ins, and concerts. Our Mini Institute provides a Taste of the Institute to younger first-time registrants who would like a half-day (morning) schedule. SOSI’s Young Artist Programs for violin, cello, and piano offer instruction in a setting that moves towards traditional music college/university instruction while maintaining roots in Suzuki philosophy and pedagogy. For parents, SOSI provides an opportunity to share ideas and learn new skills in working with their children. Suzuki teachers can develop and enhance their teaching skills during courses with outstanding instructors in violin, viola, cello, bass, and piano!
