Southwestern Ontario Suzuki Institute Inc.

Student Institute & Teacher Development postponed until 2021

Intermediate Program in Piano

We regret to inform you that an in-person SOSI will not be happening this summer.

We will be moving forward with an online version of our Young Artist Program, but all other programs will be postponed until Aug 2021, and we hope to see you all there at that time!

Be safe, and well, until we can once again gather in Waterloo, and keep the music playing!

Intermediate Program pianists have the opportunity to participate in the Sonatina Jamboree, playing one of the following movements in a recital with a string quartet: Clementi, Sonatina, Op. 36, No. 1 (choose 1 mvt.); Kuhlau, Sonatina, Op. 55, No. 1 (choose 1 mvt.); Clementi, Sonatina, Op. 36, No. 3 (Spiritoso); or Beethoven, Sonata, Op. 49, No. 2 (choose 1 mvt.).

Students will learn and study both the PRIMO and SECONDO parts of a duet and will polish and perform this piece in recital with a partner.
