NTSA SAO Chapter Schoarlarship Chat

In June, 2018, leaders from the North Texas Suzuki Association, Suzuki Association of Ontario, and the SAA had a remote conversation about scholarship programs. Both organizations have strong scholarship programs, and at the Chapter Round Table session at the SAA Conference in May, many other organizations wanted to hear details. We made this recording to answer questions and hear more details about their success.

Margaret Watts Romney

Margaret’s early professional life centered around all things related to the cello: performing, teaching, arranging music, and directing events. Awards included scholarships to attend Idyllwild Arts Academy, University of Arizona School of Music with Peter Rejto, and Westminster College’s Master of Strategic Communication Program as well. For over 20 years she has taught cello to children ages 3—18, guided by principles of Suzuki philosophy she learned from Suzuki Teacher Training in books 1-10. She has loved teaching many summers at Suzuki Institutes across the Mountain West for over 12 years. A joy in her life has been gathering cellists and playing everything from Bach to Beatles with the Salty City Cello Band, founded in 2006.  Margaret has been nicknamed “The Benevolent Pusher” for her uncanny ability to be supportive, directive, and entertaining as she leads unforgettable communication workshops, writes, or interviews fascinating people. She has coached over 100 TEDx event speakers and she is the producer and host of the SAA Podcast, “Building Noble Hearts: Inside a Teaching Community.” Her free time is filled with hiking, biking the paths of Boulder, CO, and reveling in her three grown daughters’ marvelous lives.
