Book Level Courses


Short Term Teacher Training Courses in violin, cello and piano are conducted as program of the Suzuki Association of the Americas (SAA)
following the SAA current guidelines:

SAA Prerequisites to Training
  - Every Child Can!® (ECC) is required prior to taking Book 1
  - Participants must complete the SAA videotape audition process to determine
    their status in the course (see Beginning Suzuki Teacher Training)

  - All audition materials must be submitted to the SAA and approved by course start.

  - Audition processing takes approximately 2 weeks, if submitted online. Auditions submitted early have the advantage of an optional retry (with fees) within the stated deadlines if the first audition was not accepted..

  - Participants must be active members of the SAA and be high school graduates
  - Courses must be taken in order through Book 2


The SAA training program is taught in sections corresponding to the Suzuki method books. Participants must prepare the pieces in the book to be studied

to a point of fluent performance. Memorization, although not required, is strongly suggested. At the Chicago Suzuki Institute, the teacher trainer reserves the right

to change the status of a participant to auditor if the participant is unprepared.
