The Florida Music Institute is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established in 2014 with the purpose of hosting a yearly Suzuki Summer Institute in Florida. Currently, FMI is the only Suzuki summer institute in Florida approved by the Suzuki Association of the Americas.

We serve Suzuki students and teachers in Florida, and welcome participants from as far as Alaska and Latin America!

2025 Summer Institute – Wednesday, June 11 to Saturday, June 14

The 2025 Summer Institute will be at Broadway United Methodist Church in the Lake Eola Heights Historical District. We are grateful to host the institute at this historical landmark in downtown Orlando.

FMI provides a learning community for music students, teachers, parents and others to explore talent education while improving the quality of life in Florida. This is done by  implementing the philosophy of Shinichi Suzuki’s teachings using music education as a vehicle in fostering the development of the whole person.
