29th East Tennessee Suzuki Flute Institute International
Come to Tennessee for a very special week with TOSHIO TAKAHASHI, founder of the Suzuki Method for flute! This is a rare opportunity to learn from one of the most gifted and inspiring teachers in the world. Every aspect of the Institute will be designed to give participants of all ages the most conducive environment for learning and growth and the greatest exposure to Mr. Takahashi.
This is a very special year for Suzuki flute teachers. Mr. Takahashi has not taught outside Japan in a number of years, so this is a rare, not to be missed opportunity to study directly with him. Although we are offering other SAA courses, we strongly encourage all teachers who have completed Book 1 training to take Mr. Takahashi's Overview instead. It is a 15-hour course which can be registered with the SAA as part of your training. This Overview is designed to allow Mr. Takahashi to teach in much the same as he does in his classes at the Talent Education Research Institute in Mastsumoto, Japan.
The East Tennessee Suzuki Flute Institute International provides a family-oriented environment for learning which is founded on the basic keystones of the Suzuki Philosophy: love, encouragement, positive reinforcement, respect, exposure to fine musical performances, opportunity for review and refinement of skills, and development of personal character.
The Institute combines the very best features of a convention, a conference, and a summer music camp all rolled into one exciting experience. Participants will have classes, recitals, lectures, videos, lessons, workshops, games, concerts, and FUN!
We have assembled an impressive faculty. These outstanding teachers will work with the students and will provide training courses for Suzuki teachers. As a service to Suzuki families, the Institute also provides Suzuki instruction in piano for siblings of flute students.
The Institute offers a wide range of enrichment classes and professional development opportunities along with a special lecture series for parents and teachers.
