The Suzuki Piano Teacher Training Institute at Holy Names University is a summer program for music educators to obtain credentials in Suzuki Piano Teaching.
Information for Parents on the Graduation Program
The process of proceeding to the next level is determined by submitting recordings of the graduation pieces to be viewed by a panel of teachers. In order to ensure student's success, participant's recorded performance must be fluent and without stops.

When can students perform pieces outside of Suzuki Book Repertoire?
Starting at Level 4, students may record an optional third piece which is not in the Suzuki repertoire. This means the student will submit a total of three (3) recordings: the Suzuki Graduation piece, the second Suzuki performance piece and the non-Suzuki piece which is not in the Suzuki books. The Evaluation Committee will select the appropriate piece for student to perform at the Graduation Concert.
The required pieces for each level are in the Graduation Levels page.
