Teaching Strategies* for Flute, Recorder, and Violin:

with Fabio dos Santos and Kathleen Schoen, Suzuki Association of the Americas Teacher Trainers

  • Teacher participants will bring sample videos of lessons they have taught with their students for presentation and discussion. Video length should be approximately 20m (or two shorter segments of 10m each.) Students can be working on repertoire of any level.
  • Course will begin Friday August 19 and end Sunday August 21. Hours will be flexible, given that teacher participants may be logging in to the online course from different time zones. If you are considering registering for this course, please email Kathleen Schoen at flutesrus@gmail.com with information about your time zone and schedule.
  • Registration form will be available here when registration opens.

* Teaching Strategies has been a mandatory part of the teacher training program in Latin America for many years. Whenever I travel to festivals in Peru and Ecuador to teach this class, I see such positive transformation from the teachers! I am very excited that the SAA is extending this course for the the first time to the teachers in the rest of North America, and I am looking forward to sharing it with everyone!
