Teacher Training

Why Be a Suzuki Teacher?

Yes! How do I start?

The Suzuki Association of the Americas has established a Teacher Development Program with systematic, comprehensive professional training available from registered Teacher Trainers in violin, viola, cello, bass, piano, flute, harp, guitar, recorder, accordion, brass, organ, voice, Suzuki in the Schools, and Suzuki Early Childhood Education. Both prospective and experienced teachers can benefit from the training offered through SAA’s Teacher Development Program. Recognition of training is provided by the SAA registration program for completed training credits.

Every Child Can (ECC) is the prerequisite course for all further Suzuki training, for all instruments and courses. ECC, Book 1, Book 2, and Book 3 classes must be taken in sequence before going on to other courses. 

This year, Montana Suzuki Institute will offer ECC and Violin Unit 1.  Any teacher who sends 8 or more students to the Institute receives a free spot in teacher training.  Find further information on the Course Information page and a link to registration here.
