In addition to exploring the elements of the Suzuki approach and its far-reaching goals, it includes an introduction to learning styles, history of the development of Suzuki education, the role of parents, the importance of Suzuki pedagogical training, and an overview of the SAA’s role in supporting teachers and parents. A fast-paced, engaging and inspiring program, ECC includes video materials and SAA-developed courseware, and provides each participant with useful reference materials (manuals) for later study. For teachers, ECC serves as the first course in the Suzuki Association of the Americas’ Teacher Development Program.
Thanks to a generous donation, we will be offering a full scholarship for a Black, Indigenous, or Latinx violin or viola teacher who wishes to begin Suzuki teacher training this spring. To be eligible for this award, applicants must identify as Black, Indigenous, or Latinx and plan to take the Every Child Can! course (unless already registered with the SAA) and the Violin Unit 1 course through ASI this spring.
