Suzuki Piano Teacher Training at CSYM

CSYM is the joint teaching practice of Stephen and Betty Power. Our aim is to foster musically rounded musicians. Teacher Training at CSYM is tutored by both Stephen and Betty Power, both of whom studied with Dr. Suzuki and Dr. Kataoka, (co-founders of the Suzuki piano school), in Matsumoto, Japan in the 1980's. The training leads to qualification through the European Suzuki Association (ESA), meaning that, piano teachers, once qualified, can teach the Suzuki Method (trade mark), worldwide.

Training aims to be flexible, so trainees can train in the real-life situation of our studio through a weekly or fortnightly apprenticeship scheme or take part in the course over several weekend and weeks throughout the year as part of a group. Besides training in the studio, the Summer School offers a wide range of disciplines, chamber music, new music, etc., that will supplement the core Suzuki repertoire, but still maintaining Suzuki principles of education, and the chance to encounter outstanding musicians and educators.
