Suzuki Teacher Training for Trumpet

Suzuki Trumpet Students Photo courtesy of European Suzuki AssociationThe Swedish Suzuki Association in co-operation with Västerås School of the Arts in Sweden is proud to offer the world’s first ever Suzuki Teacher Training for Trumpet Teachers: European Suzuki Association Level 1 during the academic year 2013-2014.

On October 15, 2011, the International Suzuki Association included trumpet as a Suzuki instrument. In March 2013 the European Suzuki Association (ESA) appointed Ann-Marie Sundberg to be ESA Suzuki Instructor on the trumpet, which gives the ESA the unique opportunity to offer the first ever Suzuki teacher training course for interested trumpet teachers.
