MULTI INSTRUMENT TEACHER TRAINING INFORMATION

Classes have limited numbers of participants – your spot is not secured until you checkout and pay in full.

March 15, 2024: Early Bird Registration Deadline (Use Code: EARLY-BIRD-24)
May 1, 2024: Registration Deadline

Every participant needs to be a member of the Suzuki Assocation of the Americas (SAA) and submit a videotape audition to the SAA receiving approval BEFORE the start of the course. Please click here to obtain application details. Plan ahead and allow enough time for your audition to be reviewed.

We recommend reading the SAA requirements for teacher workshop participants so you know what is expected.

PLEASE NOTE: infants, babies, and children of any age will not be allowed in teacher workshop classes. Please plan accordingly.

If you would like to make payment arrangements before April 1 (tuition divided into 3-4 payments), submit your registration without making payment and reach out to us with your phone number and email so we can contact you within a week. A spot is not guaranteed until arrangements are completed.
