SAO TEA: Teaching, Education, Action

February 7, 2021 at 2 pm – Register now!

Are you interested in developing an inclusive and safe space for Black students within your Suzuki musical community and music studios?

This equity and inclusivity workshop will be hosted by former Suzuki music students, Alador Bereketab and Sador Bereketab. They will facilitate a one-hour discussion-based workshop where they will share their perspective from their experience as some of the few Black students who studied in the Suzuki music community in Ottawa.

The workshop will be focused on how musical communities can better create a more accessible music program for a wide range of student demographics. It will be a great opportunity for music educators to gain insight on how to encourage an inclusive and safe space for Black students andparents in their organization.

Please join us for this event on February 7 at 2 pm via Zoom. The SAO is pleased to offer this workshop using a ‘pay-what-you-can’ model with a suggested donation of $10. We will be sending the Zoom link a week prior to the event. You can register for this event via Eventbrite here.
