First SAA Trumpet Teacher Training Course
Ann-Marie Sundberg, ESA Trumpet Teacher Trainer, recently held the very first Trumpet Teacher Training course in North America travelling to Calgary, Alberta in Canada to conduct an SAA Unit 1 Teacher Training course for Trumpet teachers.

This is a big stepping stone in the development of Suzuki Trumpet worldwide. 

This course was a part of the Suzuki Summer Institute at Mount Royal Conservatory in Calgary on August 5-13, 2016.
Ten teachers from three different countries took part: Canada, the United States and Brazil.
