The ESA’s current examination system of Suzuki teachers, has served the European Suzuki Community well for over 30 years.
Course assessment in higher education has, however, developed during this time. At present, assessment at universities for example, encompasses various methods of continuous assessment in addition to the traditional examination procedure.
It is felt that the ESA needs to explore the possibilities of these new assessment methods to improve Suzuki teacher training and determine whether any of these methods are useful, or even suitable for such training.

The Suzuki Voice Program officially began in 1986. Its founding within the Suzuki community was the direct result of conversations between Dr. and Mrs. Suzuki (Japan) and Dr. Päivi Kukkamäki (Finland) before, during and after Dr. Kukkamäki's extended visit to Matsumoto in the Fall of 1986. Both Dr. and Mrs. Suzuki continued their approval of the program and its development from 1986 until their deaths in 1998 (Dr. Suzuki) and 2000 (Waltraud Suzuki).

Discovering the Suzuki Voice Program
I have been working as a professional singer for many years. Alongside performing, I teach singing at varying levels to different age groups. I thoroughly enjoy passing on my musical knowledge and performance experiences to young children. My vocal style and range sessions differ between children/adolescents and adults as younger students think in a less abstract way than adults.
