There is no registration fee for the ECC course.

Registration fee is $75 for teacher development courses.  If doing more than one unit, pay registration fee only once.

Please register early. Teacher Development Courses will be cancelled if enrolment is insufficient.

For more information concerning registration, please consult the Registration section.

Teacher Training classes are offered in English.


These courses are part of a comprehensive teacher training program coordinated by the Suzuki Association of the Americas (SAA). They are effective in helping the novice teacher get started and provide on-going professional development to the established teacher.

A minimum age of 17 and a high school diploma are requirements for entering the Teacher Development Program.

There are two categories of enrolment: Participant and Auditor.

Participants must submit to the SAA a good quality recording of their performance of required pieces from the Suzuki Method repertoire. The audition can be submitted online (any video format will work) or by mail on DVD. Audition deadline is 1 month before course start date. Late submission fees are due after this date. Processing time varies from 2- 4 weeks in most cases - auditions submitted online have a much quicker turn around time. Results from late submissions may not be available by start of course. When a course is taken and completed, it will be registered with the SAA.

Auditors are not required to submit a DVD to the SAA and do not have the option of registering the unit. The SAA strongly encourages Participant status.

Observers are welcome to attend all institute activities except the Teacher Training Courses. Please check Observation section for fees and conditions.
