University Programs

A number of music schools and colleges provide opportunities for in-depth study of the Suzuki literature, observation of master teachers, and apprentice teaching. These programs are directed by registered SAA teacher-trainers and are usually two-year programs. Some programs lead to degrees with an emphasis in Suzuki pedagogy, while others offer Suzuki courses as electives.
