Course Description: The SAA Practicum Unit is an important component in the SAA’s system of level-by-level unit training. While unit core training mainly focuses on Suzuki repertoire and instrumental technique, the emphasis of the Practicum is upon developing the art of teaching. Topics include communication skills, teaching strategies, diagnostics, and observation. In a nurturing and supportive environment of peers, using video footage from their home studio and on-site teaching, participants will practice self-assessment skills to identify their strengths in teaching and those areas in need of improvement. In keeping with the SAA’s commitment to life-long learning, the Practicum will provide teachers with an invaluable opportunity at any stage in their development.
