Learning and Development

Workshops and Teacher Training, and Conferences

The SAO hosts many events throughout the year. This includes the inspirational Teaching, Education, Action sessions; the parent and family education program, Planting the Seed: Growing the Suzuki Triangle; a yearly conference for both teachers and students, and other various networking events.

Leadership Opportunities

Explore your leadership skills and develop connections.

The SAO is always looking for members to step forward and take on the responsibility of leadership while supporting the mission of the Association – to promote and support the Suzuki Method of learning by nurturing excellence in education.

Opportunities to contribute

See your contributions inform and support fellow members.

By getting involved and contributing to our quarterly newsletters, you will gain hands-on experience and watch your contributions shape the future of the Suzuki community and see the positive impact of your contribution on your fellow members.


It’s true, membership really does have its privileges.

Exclusive to our members is access to a hand-picked group of vendors, suppliers, and experts selected to help you accelerate the growth and bottom line of your studio, including preferred rate instrument insurance, and offices supplies through Staples.

Opportunities to Network and Connect

It’s true, it really is who you know.

We are surrounded by technology and barriers that inhibit human connection. One of the most valuable member benefits is the network of peers and colleagues, strengthening our shared community and being a voice for Canada in the global Suzuki community.
