Every Child Can! Class


Every Child Can!



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 course is a requirement for new teachers and is open to prospective teachers, parents, and administrators interested in learning more about Suzuki education. It is highly recommended that Suzuki parents (old and new!) register for this course. Dr. Timothy Durbin leads the class at the University of Louisville. Teacher training classes are also offered Fall and Spring semester. Please reference the course listing HERE for more information.
