Suzuki Alumni: Megan Tiller

EMU Graduate Megan Tiller says her Suzuki teacher training at EMU was pivotal in her life and career decisions.

Classroom training and mentoring relationship

I worked closely with my teacher trainer and regularly observed other experienced Suzuki instructors within a thriving Suzuki program. I trained in many environments, from private lessons, group classes, and workshops, to string ensembles and full orchestras, and even Suzuki violin in the schools!

Suzuki training and other study

I continued my own study of the violin within the context of teaching the Suzuki repertoire, and completed my teacher training while also studying psychology and language.

Career outcomes

I’m now entering my sixth year of teaching Suzuki violin. I value beyond words the community I have gained through my teaching and the Suzuki Association.
