SASA Teacher Training Information

We are not offering any teacher training courses this year as we get back into the swing of being in person. 

If you are looking for a particular course instrument and level, please do contact us and let us know. If it is at all possible for us to offer it, we will work on it for future years!


Some additional reminders concerning teacher training:

Take courses in sequence:
1) Every Child Can (ECC) is required for taking Book 1.

2) For Book 1 and Book 2, institutes are required to check that the Trainee has completed the prerequisite courses.

1) It is strongly recommended that audition videos be uploaded 8 weeks prior to the first day of the course to be taken.

2) ECC, Book 1 and Book 2 and 3 must be completed in that order. A successful audition at the appropriate level is required in order for a Trainee to register for the course.

SAA Active Membership is required before beginning a course (except ECC).

Teacher Scholarships
Scholarships are available from the Suzuki Association of the Americas (SAA) and from SASA. SAA scholarships are quite generous but require a long lead time to apply. SASA scholarships, as they are local, are easier to apply for with shorter time lines, but are less generous due to our more limited resources.
