Suzuki Teacher Training
Suzuki NSW Online Professional Development Course 2020
As we were not able to host our National Conference as planned, we have been working with international trainers to bring you an exciting online Professional Development course. We thank all our trainers around the world for their involvement in our first online course.
This course has been developed to offer new pre-recorded talks, live-streamed sessions (recorded for those who cannot make it in person), and bonus content recorded at our previous National Conference.
There is plenty of valuable content for all instruments and levels, and we hope this online course will keep you motivated and inspired to continue teaching through this very strange time we are living in.
To participate, you will need to have paid the $120 enrolment fee and be signed into a Google account. If you use Gmail, Google Drive etc, you will already have a Google account. After you have enrolled, you will be sent a link to the course content.
