Suzuki Trumpet spreads from Europe to North America
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.

Trumpet Teacher Training in Sweden
Suzuki Trumpet Teacher Training continues in Sweden, where two more teachers will take a Level 1 examination in the spring of 2017, one from France and one from Sweden.
This will make the total number of Suzuki Trumpet Teachers in the world amount to 34 teachers in 11 countries.
The following Suzuki Trumpet Teachers have taken ESA Level 1 or SAA Unit 1 Suzuki teacher training:
Horst Martin Krammer
Svend Vermund Nielsen
Salvador Andreu Alapont
Suzuki Trumpet School Volume 1
It is hoped that this will be published soon.
Suzuki Trumpet School Volume 2
Preparations for this are underway and the ISA Trumpet Committee has now mapped out the big picture for the development of all books of the Suzuki Trumpet repertoire, with Haydn’s Trumpet Concerto as the final piece.
