July 22-23, 2023 * Teaching Strategies for Violin Paule Barsalou
* Institut Suzuki Montréal is featuring the new SAA Teaching Strategies course for both violin and cello this year! Based upon the long-term success of Latin America’s “Teaching Strategies” course, the two day session answers the need for Suzuki teachers to gain practical teaching skills at earlier levels. The 10 hour course includes hands-on practicum-like activities and guided practice-teaching in a “pedagogy master-class” setting. "Teaching Strategies" can be taken in conjunction with another Teacher Development couse or on its own.
There is no registration fee for the ECC course.
Registration fee is $80 for teacher development courses.
If doing more than one unit, pay registration fee only once.
Please register early. Teacher Development Courses will be cancelled if enrolment is insufficient. Please wait for confirmation that the course you are registered for will take place before purchasing your airline ticket.
Teacher Training classes are offered in English, in a blinigual context. Efforts will be made to accomodate unilingual Francophone participants.
These courses are part of a comprehensive teacher training program coordinated by the Suzuki Association of the Americas (SAA). They are effective in helping the novice teacher get started and provide on-going professional development to the established teacher.
A minimum age of 17 and a high school diploma are requirements for entering the Teacher Development Program.
There are two categories of enrolment: Participant and Auditor.
Participants must submit to the SAA a good quality recording of their performance of required pieces from the Suzuki Method repertoire. The audition can be submitted online (any video format will work) or by mail on DVD. Audition deadline is 1 month before course start date. Late submission fees are due after this date. Processing time varies from 2- 4 weeks in most cases - auditions submitted online have a much quicker turn around time. Results from late submissions may not be available by start of course. When a course is taken and completed, it will be registered with the SAA.
Auditors are not required to submit a DVD to the SAA and do not have the option of registering the unit. The SAA strongly encourages Participant status.
Observers are welcome to attend all institute activities except the Teacher Training Courses. Please check Observation section for fees and conditions.
