Beth Titterington has been involved in the Suzuki Method since the autumn of 1972 when she first heard the Japanese Talent Education Tour Group. She has studied with many people in the Talent Education field including, most importantly, Dr. Suzuki. She traveled to the American Suzuki Institute in the summer of 1973 to study the Method. She went back each summer thanks to the encouragement of the director, Margery Aber. Mrs. Titterington is currently a Violin Teacher Trainer for the Suzuki Association of the Americas and served on the SAA Board of Directors from 2006-2009. She founded an SAA regional affiliate, the Heart of America Suzuki Association, in 1979. From 1975 to the present, she has taught at hundreds of Suzuki Institutes and Workshops in the United States, Canada and in England. She received her M.M. from the University of Missouri ( KC) Conservatory in 1977 and then studied the baroque violin with Marilyn McDonald at Oberlin and Michaela Comberti in London. Mrs. Titterington has been adjunct faculty at both the University of Missouri (KC) Conservatory and the University of Kansas. She continues to maintain her private studio, Kansas City Talent Education. As a baroque violinist and gambist, she and her husband John directed the Kansas City Period Orchestra for 20 years. She continues to enjoy teaching children to play the violin and training new Suzuki teachers ………..both of them equally!
