Instrumental Teachers Professional Development Weekend
Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 September
9.30am-4.30pm (approximate times)
Advanced Vibrato (Higher Positions & Double Stops) for Upper Strings
Monday 5 and 12 October
A two-part series focusing on developing vibrato for advanced violinists & violists. A follow on to the July vibrato session, but equally as accessible to new participants, these sessions will allow you to extend your vibrato skills in the higher positions and with double stops and to explore the different colours and textures which can be achieved for different characters. This is recommended for advanced players
A 2-day CPD (continuous professional development) weekend for instrumental teachers, with a focus on string teachers. Whether you teach whole class, small groups, individuals, work for a charity, a music service or local authority, a junior conservatoire or teach privately, this weekend will ultimately aim to build a new sense of community where teachers from all backgrounds come together to inspire and motivate, to engage and share and to learn and develop from the best educators and teachers around. This course aspires to leave you with new found excitement and enthusiasm about teaching your instrument, and a chance to forge new relationships with those in similar positions.
Workshops will include: Back to Basics, Engaging Students with Scales and Studies, Teaching Whole Class, Small Group and Individual lessons, Physical Wellbeing, Mental Health and Performance Anxiety, Kodaly in the Instrumental Lesson, Inspirational Talks, Teaching Improvisation and Harmony, Fundamental Values, Story-telling, Lesson Planning and more…
There are limited spaces in Saffron Hall and these spaces will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
