Welcome to the
International Research Symposium on Talent Education
The International Research Symposium on Talent Education (IRSTE)
welcomes all teachers, researchers and parents to hear about the latest
applications of research as it relates to Suzuki teaching and learning.
Examples of past topics areas are group lessons, parent education,
memorization, performance anxiety, music language and the brain and Suzuki
teacher demographics, to name a few.
Established by Margery Aber in 1990 at the University of
Wisconsin-Stevens Point, the symposium is a means to promote research among
Suzuki teachers, disseminate research that influences teaching practice, and
educate teachers to use research in resolving studio challenges. The most
recent keynote speakers have included Dr. Robert A. Duke, Dr. Laurel Trainor,
Dr. Robert Cutietta, Dr. Aniruddh Patel and Beatriz Ilari.
The Symposium welcomes all who are interested. Want to learn more? Please visit ...
