The TERI online event “Natsumatsuri” on August 1st and 2nd was a great success.

SUZUKI™ Lesson Link Up took place throughout the ESA region on World Music Day - 21 June 2020, a day when students had the unique opportunity of a ‘distance lesson’ with a teacher from another country.
350 teachers connected with 700 students across Europe, Middle East and Africa demonstrating the great ability of the SUZUKI™ Method to connect people united by a single project and who speak the same SUZUKI™ language.
From SUZUKI™ child and student, to SUZUKI™ Teacher and Teacher Trainer, Martin Rüttimann has lived and breathed the SUZUKI™ Method and philosophy all of his life. Appointed to the Board of the European Suzuki Association (ESA) first as Country Director for Switzerland, then Honorary Secretary, Deputy Chairman and finally Chairman (2011 to 2020), his contribution to the ESA has been enormous and he will certainly be remembered as one of the most accomplished leaders in the history of the ESA.
The new SUZUKI™ recordings (Volumes 1-3) by internationally renowned violinist, Hilary Hahn, in collaboration with Natalie Zhu, will be released in July of 2020.
During this unprecedented time, Alfred Music is offering a variety of online tools for those teaching remotely, including making Alfred Music Suzuki publications in SmartMusic available at no cost until 30 June 2020.
