The Borealis Suzuki Institute (BSI) is the the summer program supported by the Edmonton Suzuki Flute & Recorder Society. Students who are members of ESFRS may participate in BSI activities at no extra charge, but they must register in advance to reserve their place. Suzuki students from outside the ESFRS program are also welcome to participate in the Institute upon payment of the fees for their course, or they may become members of ESFRS.


For increased accessibility, our Institute programming has moved to a hybrid format, with all events available online, combined with options for in person attendance for local teachers and students. Registered students will receive links to video conference events via email. Observers are still welcome! Email to obtain links to events that are open to the public.

Please note that teachers are expected to attend student classes, as class observation and possible practice teaching are part of most teacher course requirements.

Individual timetables will be emailed with registration confirmations.
