The Suzuki Association of the Americas has developed extensive teacher development courses offered at various locations across the country by a select group of registered teacher trainers. The Western Springs School of Talent Education and Naperville Suzuki School faculty includes four of the country’s leading teacher trainers. Additional information, including SAA Teacher Training guidelines, can be viewed on the SAA website by clicking here.
Apprenticeship Teacher Training Courses create a community of teachers who meet together to receive pedagogical instruction from Suzuki Association of the Americas registered teacher trainers. Together, we share solutions to common teaching problems and all of the relevant teaching points, philosophy and pedagogy related to the unit of study. Upon completion of all course requirements, participants' training will be registered with the Suzuki Association of the Americas.
If you are interested in a course that we are not currently offering, please let us know!
This will help us to determine which courses to offer in the future.
We are also pleased to offer a growing collection of observation videos available at realviolinlessons.com. We know that it is often difficult for active teachers to complete their Teacher Training Observations, so we have developed this website as a solution to make teacher training more attainable for current teachers.
