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.

  • Applicants with auditions prepared any time up to 4 weeks before the Unit One course(May 30), will follow the regular audition process.  The website,  www.suzukiassociation.org  will be programmed to assist the applicant in checking for exact audition deadlines for Unit One and Book 5 and above..
  • Applicants with 10 days to 4 weeks before the start of the course have the opportunity to submit an express audition, with an added $40 fee.
  • Auditions within 10 days of the course start will no longer be accepted.  Those wishing to apply within 10 days of the course are encouraged to explore a variety of other alternatives e.g. a later course offering; audit the course; submit an audition for the future; take only ECC etc.

Please visit the SAA website at www.suzukiassociation.org, and click on the teacher training link to access the downloadable video audition application form (with instructions); or call the SAA toll free at 888-378-9854 to request this form.
