Hello!

I’m Jocelyn Crosby, a suzuki flute teacher in the Philadelphia region. I’m seeking to start a Suzuki in the Schools in one of the suburban school districts. If you are a Suzuki teacher with a PA Department of Education certification and you are in the area, contact me! I’m going to need some other Suzuki instrument teachers and a lot of help to get community involvement and super intendant cooperation.

I know a lot of you probably have performance or other degrees. Sadly, you really have to have an education degree and a certification in order to participate.

Thank you,
Jocelyn Crosby

Dear Jocelyn,

I would suggest you to contact Dr. Laurie Scott (https://suzukiassociation.org/people/laurie-scott/) and/or Mr. Mr. William J. Dick (https://suzukiassociation.org/people/william-dick/). They are SAA teacher trainers for the Suzuki in the Schools. However, I don’t know how this training is seen by the different school districts.

I hope this is a bit of help! Good luck!

There will be several Suzuki in the Schools sessions at the Conference—May 24—28. It is highly likely that you can meet people who may be interested and talk about the different ways the Suzuki philosophy has been incorporated into the school setting.

Registering your Suzuki in the Schools training does not replace licensure.
However, I did post-degree licensure to teach in the schools. Does your
state offer that?

As far as having a music ed degree, that’s not enough. You have to take some of the “praxis exams” and then apply for pa license. I believe if you already have a license in another state that can replace a music ed degree.

Hi André!

I am also from Brazil, but I am living in the US for 5 years now. I’ll write in English, so other people in the forum can understand! ;)

When a teacher wants to teach orchestra classes in the Public School system here in the US, s/he needs to have a license. This has nothing to do with Suzuki training… This license is usually given to people that have Music Education degrees that, at the end of their courses, apply for it and go through a series of tests. Of course, the “steps” change from state to state, too.

This system has some advantages and disadvantages, in my opinion. For example, it is an advantage because it’s not everyone that can be considered for the job… you need to be qualified, in order to apply. However (and here is one disadvantage), not many Music Ed. majors are string players (at least on the state I live), so we have a lot of wind players teaching string classes…

I am interested in beginning a Suzuki in the Schools flute and/or recorder program in our preschool. If you have developed a program, I would love to hear about it.
