Masterclasses are available for students of all levels.

A typical masterclass at Suzuki Institute groups three or four students, and each student works one-on-one with the masterclass teacher for 15–20 minutes while the others watch and learn from their peers. This is the way Dr. Suzuki taught his students, too. Each child's individual time is shorter than their typical private lesson, and the clinician focuses on one key area to develop in the child's playing. These short sessions make a major impact and spur long-term improvements.

In this winter workshop, with only one chance to be taught by Dr.Durbin, some more advanced players will want more time to engage one-on-one. Parents can choose the length of class they'd like—book-level recommendations below are suggestions and not prescriptive.

Students should perform a polished piece when they work individually with Dr. Durbin. Masterclass performers will also participate in the group sessions listed above, and masterclass fees include group class registration.
