All teachers want to be more effective and to elevate the craft of student performance skills. But, is that enough? Perhaps it is the art of music making that really matters and makes teaching it essential. These sessions will focus on core fundamentals, creative pedagogy, repertoire selection, meaningful conducting gesture, and musical artistry. The overall goal is to help participants become inspirational, artistic educators who embrace the idea that the ultimate role of education is leading students to think for themselves.
