Suzuki Association of the Americas Guidelines:

Training Prerequisites and Course Order:

To take Suzuki teacher training, teachers must be Active members of the SAA. Every Child Can! (ECC) is required prior to taking Unit 1. Courses must be taken in order through Unit 3: ECC, Unit 1, Unit 2, Unit 3. Once this sequence has been completed, higher units may be taken out of order, if desired.

Audition Requirement:

To qualify as a participant in SAA Teacher Workshop unit courses, applicants must submit a DVD or uploaded video audition to the SAA, preferably well in advance of taking the course. Videos submitted at least 8 weeks prior to the course start date will receive a discounted audition fee; if submitted later than 8 weeks before the course, the regular audition fee will be required. Auditions for Unit 1 courses must be received no later than 10 days prior to the course start date. Auditions for all other Units must be submitted and approved by the course start.

If auditions are not accepted, course work will not be eligible for SAA registration. For further information, please see the SAA website at www.suzukiassociation.org to view the teacher video audition application form and instructions, or call the SAA toll free 1-888-378-9854.

Required Course Preparation

All teacher training participants are asked to prepare and memorize the repertoire to be studied to the point of fluent performance. Additionally, participants should be conversant with the ideas presented in Dr. Suzuki’s book Nurtured by Love.  All participants will be performing Suzuki repertoire and other materials in class. You are expected to provide your own instrument.  100% attendance is required for registering the course.

Each participant enrolled in a Unit 1 course will receive a letter from the SAA stating the preparation expectations and basic course components. Letters are emailed directly to each participant as they are added to the institute’s online roster. Each letter is instrument-specific and covers information such as reading material, Suzuki books and CDs, piece preparation, and items to bring to the course.

 

Suzuki Teacher Training ParticipantsThere is a video audition requirement to register training with the Suzuki Association of the Americas (SAA).  If the audition is not approved, you may attend the course as an Auditor, but would not be permitted to register the training with SAA.  Please understand that regardless of your audition results the cancellation policy is still in effect.  Video auditions must be approved prior to the start of the teacher training course.  SAA recommends that you allow at least two weeks for evaluation of audition videos.
