The Deborah Moench Suzuki Teacher Training Program

At Gifted Music School, we believe that ongoing teacher training is an essential component of being a great teacher.  

Deborah Moench, a founding board member of Gifted Music School and renowned Suzuki violin pedagogue, believes that continual improvement is a basic quality of a teacher. Being an effective teacher is a process of learning, adjusting, practicing, and adapting. Every student is unique and presents unique challenges. 

The school invites master teachers to come and give lectures, host practicums, and give demonstrations.
