Application for Short-Term Courses
Teachers may enroll in Suzuki Association of the Americas (SAA) courses as either participants or auditors. All participants are eligible to receive SAA registration. Participants must provide their own instruments and will perform during class sessions. The auditor category is designed for teachers who do not have the technical facility to perform the material in the book being studied. Auditors do not perform during class sessions. Teachers may enroll for only one course per time period listed.
To qualify as a participant in training courses rather than an auditor, applicants must submit a DVD audition of specified repertoire to the SAA, preferably prior to enrollment. DVDs must be submitted at least eight weeks prior to the course start date. Audition results determining participant eligibility may not be available prior to the course and will require late audition fees. An applicant may enroll late as "audition pending" but will incur late audition fees, and audition results determining eligibility for participant credit will not be available until after the course. If auditions from "audtition pending" applicants are not accepted, their coursework will not be eligible retroactively for SAA credit registration as a participant -- only as an auditor -- even if coursework was completed.
