STEAA welcomes international and national line-up of trainers and experts – Online Professional Development program.

We are very pleased to present an extensive line-up of Suzuki trainers and industry experts who will be hosting Philosophy lectures and Repertoire sessions in our annual Online Professional Development Program for teachers.

This year there is inspiring content for all teachers in Violin, Piano, Cello, Flute, Recorder, Viola, Guitar and Early Childhood Education. The Online Program will also feature a keynote talk by Mr Seizo Azuma (Japan) titled: “ What is the Aim of Suzuki Method?”

By enrolling in the Online Program, all NSW teachers will fulfill their required 10 hours of Suzuki PD to maintain their annual accreditation and be eligible to present students for graduation in 2024.

Most sessions will be live streamed via Zoom and have been scheduled to accommodate tutors in various international time zones. Replays of all live-streamed sessions will be available to watch 48 hours later, but we recommend that teachers try to immerse themselves in as many live sessions as they can to get the most out of the experience and have the opportunity to ask questions.
