Auburndale, MA 02466

January 18, 2015 12:00 PM—5:00 PM
January 19, 2015 9:00 AM—4:00 PM

What is SPA?

Suzuki Principles in Action (SPA) is a course designed to help teachers incorporate Suzuki’s principles effectively in their teaching. The course focuses on how to teach, not what to teach, and to allow for the sharing of ideas among all instrument areas. It is based on Dr. Suzuki’s belief that knowledge is an important first step, but “knowledge plus 10,000 times” is what produces ability.

Suzuki teachers of all instruments are invited to attend.  Participants must be SAA members, have an active studio, and have completed Unit 1 on their given instrument.
