Student Program: Book 1

The Atlanta Suzuki Institute's Book 1 program consists of 3 core classes for Suzuki violin, viola, cello, or guitar students.

ASI plans to return to in-person instruction this summer!

Classes will be held at the Hugh Hodgson School of Music on the campus of the University of Georgia in Athens from Thursday, June 23 through Sunday, June 26, 2022.

June registration will be considered on a space-available basis.

Email the Atlanta Suzuki Institute for more information.

Book 1 students will participate in the following 3 core classes: 

Lesson Class

Repertoire Class

Music & Movement Class

Book 1 students are eligible to add up to 2 the following elective classes in addition to the core program above: 

Drumming (open to all levels & instruments)

Fiddling (mid-Book 1 and up, violin & viola students only)

Cello Choir (Book 1 and up, cello students only)

Guitar Ensemble (Book 1 and up, guitar students only)

We are pleased to offer an Art Class Series (open to ages 4+) and a Family Chorus (open to all) for Suzuki students and their families this year. In addition, all students and families are welcome and encouraged to attend all guest artist and student recitals as well as any Institute-wide social activities. 

We realize that Suzuki journeys begin at a variety of ages. We welcome beginning Suzuki students of all ages, and will do our best to group students by age as well as book level when scheduling Book 1 students.

As this is a residential institute, we expect classes and other activities to be spread over several hours each day, including evenings. Individual/daily schedules will not be available until June.

Registration Fee (non-refundable): $100 per family

Book 1 Program Fee: $400 per participant

Extra Elective Fee: $75 per class per participant (max. 2)

Art Class Series Fee: $40 per participant (ages 4+)

Family Chorus Fee: $10 per participant (open to all)


A limited number of need-based scholarships and scholarships for students of color are available.

ASI is continuing to monitor the status of the COVID-19 pandemic, and has developed a tiered system of COVID-19 mitigation measures/policies that are determined by community case counts and participant vaccination rates. These policies are now available on our 2022 COVID-19 Policies page and all participants will be notified of the required tier of mitigation policies prior to arrival at ASI.
