Ogontz Suzuki Institute is a summer music camp founded more than 25 years ago by Susan Reed and Domenick and Linda Fiore, based on the teaching principles of Dr. Shinichi Suzuki. Located at a historic girls' camp in New Hampshire's beautiful White Mountains, Ogontz provides young musicians and their families with master classes, group classes, and orchestral and chamber music opportunities with a caring faculty of Suzuki-trained teachers for an unforgettable experience of creativity, camaraderie, and community.

Practice Pathways is a special, pre-camp session for violin, viola, cello, bass students in Book 7 through the major literature, featuring five days of intensive masterclasses, performance classes, score reading, chamber music readings, discussions on performance preparation and guided practicing. This workshop is for the self-motivated student with a desire to apply and improve their musical and technical abilities. Parents are welcome, but we encourage musical and personal independence. However, for students 13 and under a parent or guardian is required to attend. Our talented, experienced and nurturing faculty round out this powerful musical experience.
