What is the Every Child Can! Course?

Every Child Can!© (ECC) is an introduction to Dr. Suzuki’s philosophy and its application to Suzuki education. For parents, teachers, prospective teachers and others, this course provides an inspiring, in-depth look at the Suzuki approach to teaching and learning.

In addition to exploring the elements of the Suzuki approach and its far-reaching goals, it includes an introduction to learning styles, history of the development of Suzuki education, the role of parents, the importance of Suzuki pedagogical training, and an overview of the SAA’s role in supporting teachers and parents. A fast-paced, engaging and inspiring program, ECC includes video materials and SAA-developed courseware, and provides each participant with useful reference materials (manuals) for later study. For teachers, ECC serves as the first course in the Suzuki Association of the Americas’ Teacher Development Program.        

  • This is a 6-Hour course. You must attend ENTIRE day to obtain credit for the course.
  • As there is a limited number of participants that can take this course at one time, it allows for more one-on-one time with the facilitator.
  • Materials have to be ordered from the Suzuki Association of the Americas, so it is imperative that you send in your registration materials and payment on time or early.
