View All Kids Activities

The Centenary Suzuki School (CSS) provides top instruction to area violin, viola and cello students, helping motivated young men and women advance their talents. The program, based at the Hurley School of Music at Centenary College in Shreveport, has trained more than 2,000 students in the respected Suzuki method since opening in 1977.

CSS students have been chosen for principal chairs in their high school orchestras and have received special honors in the All-State Orchestra. Over the past decade, more students from CSS have also made the National High School Honor Orchestra than from any other program in the state.

CSS is the only college-affiliated Suzuki program in Louisiana. CSS graduates have gained admission to a variety of prestigious universities including: Princeton, Brown, Johns Hopkins, Northwestern University, Notre Dame, Rice, Vanderbilt, Yale, MIT and many others.
