2018 SAO Conference

Save the Date! November 10-11, 2018 in Etobicoke, Ontario

Nurturing the Suzuki Triangle with Edmund Sprunger!

The conference co-ordinating committee (Margot Jewell, Amanda Lee, Rachel Gauntlett, and Tricia Balmer) has been working hard on planning this special event! We are happy to announce that the conference will be held at the Lakeshore Campus of Humber College in Etobicoke Ontario (west end of Toronto). A lovely location by the lake, this college is easily accessible by car from the Gardiner Expressway, QEW and highway 427 or by TTC.

Students are welcome to participate in a workshop day on November 10 to work with outstanding Ontario teachers. Parents will also enjoy a parent talk with acclaimed Suzuki pedagogue, Ed Sprunger, the author of “Helping Parents Practice” who will share his unique perspective as a psychotherapist and musician.

Join your colleagues November 11, to be inspired by our outstanding keynote speaker, Ed Sprunger from St Louis MO. A graduate of the Talent Education Institute in Matsumoto, Japan, Ed also has a  BA in music from Goshen College, as well as MSW from the University of Michigan, and extensive training at the St. Louis Psychoanalytic Institute. Ed is a registered SAA teacher trainer and has given many helpful and inspiring talks to parents and teachers at SAA conferences and on Parents as Partners Online. In addition to his teaching, he is also a psychotherapist in private practice, and the author of two books. Ed will be joined by other outstanding break out speakers  who will be announced shortly.

Encourage your students and colleagues to join you for a special weekend in Toronto!
