Hello colleagues!
I am about to start up my season of group classes, and I’m hoping that some of you have some experience with shared group classes.

A local Suzuki piano teacher and I will be co-teaching a biweekly group class with both piano and violin students in the room. The string players are largely pre-Twinkle and Twinklers, and the piano students are early book 1.

We plan to incorporate a lot of general music games as well as finding opportunities for some duets. Obviously we both want to be sure that the inevitable compromise involved in such a class makes for a better experience for everyone.

Does anyone have some proven gems for this situation that you would be willing to share?
