SAA Conference 2016

May 26-30, 2016 | Minneapolis, MN

The 17th Biennial SAA Conference will be held at the Hilton Minneapolis and Minneapolis Convention Center May 26-30, 2016. Come join fellow teachers, parents, and students as we celebrate the theme We Are Suzuki: Embracing the Vision. Be sure to check this site frequently as detailed information will be added regularly about this enriching and inspirational weekend.

Vision of 1,000!

Our goal is 1,000 registered teachers. We need you! You won’t regret the investment. Be a part of the effort to reach this goal–no less than a 20% increase in teacher attendance. Gathering together in Minneapolis with 1,000 teachers plus hundreds of students, parents, exhibitors and friends next May will enable us to envision SAA’s bright future, full of endless possibilities. Together we will all create or renew our vision for what we can accomplish together—“We Are Suzuki!” Even before the closing events, we hope to hear “best evers” in almost every context!

Please help! Send an invitation to a new teacher. Invite a colleague who might need a little encouragement to attend. Bring along a music-loving friend from another profession so your friend can experience firsthand why Suzuki means so much to you.

And, of course, encourage any of your qualified students to audition for special student events.

Plan now! You’ll be enriched by pedagogy sessions, master classes, live music and more! Help us reach our goal of 1,000 participants, as we celebrate the theme We Are Suzuki: Embracing the Vision. See you in Minneapolis in May!
