Join SOSI in piloting a new SAA course next summer!
Based on the long-term success of Latin America’s Teaching Strategies
course, and answering the need for Suzuki teachers to gain practical teaching skills at earlier levels, the SAA is piloting Violin Unit 2
with Teaching Strategies
at SOSI in 2019.
It’s actually two courses in one—a regular 15-hour Violin Unit 2 course covering Book 2 pedagogy, combined with Teaching Strategies, a 10-hour class that includes hands-on practicum-like activities and guided practice-teaching in a “pedagogy master class” setting.
SAA-registered Teacher Trainer Joanne Melvin, past SAA board chair and current member of SAA’s Teacher Development Advisory Committee (TDAC), will teach the course. Participants who complete the integrated course will come away with valuable information, both about Book 2 and about their own teaching, and they will be able to register their participation in both the Violin Unit 2 and “Strategies” courses with SAA.
Have you already taken and registered Violin Unit 2, but want to take advantage of the “Strategies” course? You can sign up for “Strategies” as a single course!
