Buffalo-Niagara Suzuki Institute

Buffalo-Niagara Suzuki Institute
Buffalo, NY

This course explores the application of Suzuki philosophy and materials in classroom settings. The Suzuki in the Schools Course 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. 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 fundamental principles of learning, and practice creating successful learning experiences that effectively change student thinking and behavior.

The course is taught by SAA registered Suzuki in the Schools trainers and includes 15 hours of classroom instruction and 8 hours of observation in live and video settings. Participants wishing to register the course with the SAA must have completed and registered ECC and Book 1 in their individual instrument. The technical aspects of the curriculum are focused on violin, viola, cello and bass, however transfer of learning principles and adaptation of materials can be applicable to any instrument.
