1. Performance Opportunities
Many Suzuki Institutes will provide opportunities or solo performances. Some of these will be performances that anyone can sign up for while others will require an audition process. Some institutes will have an audition process before it begins or on the first day of the institute. If you plan on auditioning it is best to choose a piece that is at a high performance level. Usually it is best if it is a piece that your child has already performed before in front of an audience. That way the student is very comfortable with the piece and will enjoy the experience. If playing at an institute is new for your child then we want to make this as positive an experience as possible. Performing a piece your child knows extremely well is one way to help. Please note that at some Suzuki Institutes only a small number of students will be selected to play after the audition process. It should not be the main focus of your institute experience.
