Enrichment Classes

Our Book 1-8 program includes one enrichment class.

You may also register à la carte for stand-alone enrichment classes.  

Dalcroze Eurythmics

Dalcroze is a wonderfully fun and active whole-body musical experience. Students use their bodies to feel, embody, and create music. This is a favorite among many returning students! Please follow this link to read more about Dalcroze Eurythmics from our instructor: Dalcroze Parent Intro

For ages 4 and up.



NEW: Craft Your Practice

Spice up your practice routine! You’ll keep yourself focused and engaged through the year with games and practice tools that you create in class. Your practice partners will thank you! No crafting experience required.

For ages 5 and up.


NEW: Renaissance/Baroque Dance

Have you wondered what the many minuets, gavottes, and gigues in the Suzuki repertoire are all about? Here is your chance to learn basic steps to the dances we play and to develop the expressive connection between what you hear and how you move.

For ages 10 and up.



StringsPop!

StringsPop is a super fun, experiential journey through applied music theory and literacy. You’ll create Pop Music arrangements for string instruments in layers – melody, harmony, bass line and rhythm. You may also explore making multi-track recordings and music videos.

For ages 10 and up. Recommended scale fluency in keys up to 4 sharps and 4 flats (two octaves).


Chamber Music


Experience the thrill of playing parts in a small group! Develop your artistry while improving your listening and communication skills.

For students in Suzuki Book 4 or equivalent. Music will be sent by the end of June.

 You may register for an Enrichment class à la carte, although preference will be given to students who are registered in our full day program. A parent or other responsible adult must be present on campus with students during their classes. A la carte registration costs $150 and includes:

Four sessions of your selected class

 Attendance at our inspiring Honors Recitals

 Participation in our Teen Social (age 12+)

My daughter loved her classes! She was very motivated by the other students and wanted to go back to institute again.
JSSI really helped her to want to do better!
