For any string student in the community playing at Suzuki Book 3/ RCM Grade 2 level, the Newfoundland & Labrador Suzuki Institute

offers an orchestra experience.

Orchestra provides experience in sight-reading, ensemble playing and performance. The program offers a daily 55-minute rehearsal  Monday - Friday with an experienced conductor and a performance on the Final Concert. 

This class allows young musicians from outside of STEP to join NLSI for the orchestra rehearsals and performances. Students from school orchestras, community youth orchestras, chamber music programs, and string programs are welcome!  Non-Suzuki students should be playing and reading at a  RCM Grade 2 level. 

Orchestra-only students are welcome and encouraged to attend all guest faculty and student concerts as well as any Institute-wide social activities. 


Parents play an extremely important role in the Suzuki method and are expected to attend all lessons and classes with their child 12 years and under. 


Orchestra students will need to bring a music stand to rehearsal. Please label with your name. Music will be emailed out to students in advance. Please bring your music and a pencil with you to all rehearsals.


Orchestra-only students do not need to attend check-in on Sunday, but are welcome to watch and enjoy the play-in at 2:00 pm. Daily classes begin Monday.

Orchestra Only Program Fee: $75
