The Royal Conservatory School Summer String Institute focuses on providing a condensed week of instruction for violin, viola, cello, and double bass students ages 4 to 17. The Institute offers four different camp options designed for students at various levels of playing ability. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to study with our faculty of acclaimed musicians.
Intro to Suzuki (ages 4+)

Book 1 and 2 Camp (ages 4–8)
This one-week camp is designed to reinforce techniques and repertoire from Twinkle through the end of Book 2.

Classes will be arranged by level of completed repertoire.

This intensive one-week camp offers individual instruction, group instruction, reading class, enrichment activities, and orchestra in a fun and engaging environment.
Chamber and Orchestra Camp (ages 8+)*
Designed for string students who are seeking a more intensive summer camp experience, this camp includes individual instruction, group class, chamber music, enrichment activity and orchestra. Students will be grouped in a chamber music ensemble based on their playing level and reading ability. Students should be in Suzuki Book 4 (or equivalent) and above.
Students who do not currently study as the RCS should submit an audio/video sample to email@example.com for placement.
