The video is based on excerpts of the Teach Suzuki podcast by Paula E. Bird, Texas State University.

Paula Bird speaks about her experiences at the 8th annual conference of the International Suzuki Teachers Exchange in Remscheid, Germany at the end of October 2016 and relates details of the events that she attended and the people that she met and learned from.
She offers a suggestion about why attending such an important conference is valuable for Suzuki teachers and invites teachers already now to the next conference.
