String Teachers'

Professional Development Weekend

Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 September 

9.30am-4.30pm (approx)

Advanced Vibrato (Higher Positions & Double Stops) for Upper Strings

Monday 5 and 12 October

7-8pm BST

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

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 with the best educators and teachers around. This weekend 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.
