Graduation Registration and Video Recordings are due by March 1.

Graduation marks a milestone achievement in many Suzuki programs around the world. Graduation is meant to motivate and encourage students toward excellence. Special pieces that represent a high level of achievement have been chosen for each instrument area.

Students prepare the appropriate piece from the Graduation Repertoire listed below. Then they record their piece at the highest level and submit it for adjudication.
