The Augustana Conservatory of Music is excited to be hosting a Suzuki Every Child Can Workshop. The Suzuki method of music education was developed more than 50 years ago by Japanese violinist Shinichi Suzuki. Suzuki realized that children a world over learn to speak their native language with ease by hearing, imitating and repeating. He decided to apply these basic principles of language acquisition to the learning of music and called his method the mother-tongue approach.

Every Child Can is the first level of Suzuki educator training. The principles taught in the one day workshop are applicable to studio music teachers, elementary school educators and parents of students in Suzuki lessons. The course will be taught by Augustana’s own Kathleen Schoen, instructor of flute and recorder. Kathleen has been a certified Suzuki Method Teacher Trainer since 2013 and has travelled the world training Suzuki teachers. We are excited to be offering our inaugural training course here at Augustana and hope it is the first of many!
