Event Description

A heterogeneous string class taught using the concepts of the Suzuki Method has the interest of many string teachers. This Suzuki in the Schools course explores the application of the Suzuki philosophy and materials for classroom success.

The 23-hour course includes 15 hours of classroom instruction, 5 hours of observation and supervised teaching in a Violin B class, and three hours of observation of the trainers in orchestra and group classes. Trainer will provide videos of working with public school classes for participants interested in additional observations.

Participants wishing to register the course with the SAA must have completed and registered ECC and Book 1 in their individual instrument.

The Suzuki method is used in multiple ways in public and private schools. Successful models feature repertoire memory and review, small step sequenced instruction and a curriculum based on mastery learning. All successful models embrace the Suzuki philosophy and foster a positive learning environment for every child. The Suzuki approach can be successful in like-instrument classes and mixed-instrument classes. The Suzuki in the Schools Course Unit I presents strategies for incorporating Suzuki philosophy and methodology in the beginning stages of technical instruction. A sequenced repertoire that supports the technical and musical study of beginning level students in the string class setting will be presented and opportunities for transfer to other learning situations will be discussed. Steps towards the development of aural and interactive ensemble skills will also be explored. Effective learning sequences that focus on the development of excellent fundamental skills will be the focus of each class session. Participants will acquire a basic understanding of the fundamental principles of learning, and practice creating successful learning experiences that effectively change student thinking and behavior.
