    Suzuki Principles in Action (SPA) is a course designed to help teachers incorporate Suzuki’s principles effectively in their teaching. The course focuses on how to teach, not what to teach, and to allow for the sharing of ideas among all instrument areas. It is based on Dr. Suzuki’s belief that knowledge is an important first step, but “knowledge plus 10,000 times” is what produces ability.

    Any SAA teacher can attend (from the very experienced to the novice) who has completed training through Book 1 and has taught a minimum of one year. Teachers of all Suzuki instruments are welcome! The cost is $190 and includes all pre-course work due October 26th (some reading and a 30-minute video of the attendee’s teaching) and post-course work submitted online. Completion of the SPA course is then registered with the SAA. The course is limited to 10-15 participants to allow for a more individualized and personalized experience for everyone. 

    SPA is a prerequisite for the Certificate of Achievement.

    Instructor:  Sharon Miller
