We attended the Suzuki Association of the Americas Leadership Retreat this May. This is a very intense and stimulating event, with non-stop sessions for three days, plus extra events before and after the main part of the conference.
Kathleen is on the committee for the SAA Conference in May 2016, so any teachers reading this blog entry can contact her if there is a particular session you would like to see at the conference.
ESFRS students can look forward to some exciting new additions to the group classes next year, thanks to some wonderful Suzuki Early Childhood Education and Kodaly based music reading resources that we have brought back.
Thomas was able to work with Brian Lewis for six hours on advanced group class material, so STE violin students can also look forward to exciting new things in group class next year.
And in between all these wonderful sessions, there was time for Kathleen to accept an SAA Certificate of Achievement. This was for her work as a flute teacher, in addition to her work as a SAA Teacher Trainer for recorder.
