New Video Lesson Policy And Class Cancellations Due To Coronavirus (COVID-19)
(Updated on Saturday, March 14, 2020)

Out of an abundance of caution, all lessons and classes at the Suzuki Institute of Boston have been cancelled until further notice.  We are offering video lessons using Zoom, FaceTime, Google Duo, or Skype starting next week.  We are trying out different formats and will be posting additional instructional materials on the website. Video lessons will be by appointment and not necessarily at your regular time.​

The way to join us.
Class observation first.
Then registration.
Class observation

Observing lessons and classes.

First, make an appointment to visit classes with your child at least two days in advance. Feel free to visit as many times as you want before you decide to join. Observing is free but you need to make an appointment. Then talk with the director to decide your individual lesson and group class schedule.

Complete information before first lesson.

Students are asked to complete the registration information with the director and make payment arrangements prior to the first lesson.

Students are admitted for a specific individual lesson teacher, lesson time, and group class. Tuition is based on the location of the individual lesson and includes group classes. There is a non-refundable registration fee of $100.00 each year. Students joining in mid-term pay a prorated fee.
Lesson fees for a 16-week semester
30 minutes $1060.00*
45 minutes $1540.00
60 minutes $2020.00
Group class for additional children in the same family is $220.00 per term.
String Ensemble, Chamber Music, and Adult String Ensemble: $220 per term plus materials fee.
Financial aid

Available to students in need.

Financial aid is available to help with the cost of lessons. Please call the director for information at 617-566-0002. We believe that every student who really wants to study should have a chance and ask students to pay at least part of the fee and help the school the same way.
Our scholarships are funded by gifts from our supporters. Learn more about how you can get involved and give the Gift of Music to others.
