Establishing Excellence from the Beginning
Jul 6 and 13, 2020 in Aurora, IL
at Studio of Sally Gross


Establishing Excellence from the Beginning: Cello

Instructor: Sally Gross,

Event Description

When starting a beginner, the most important things on my mind are earning their trust and making it enjoyable, so much so that they will want to come back to the cello day after day. However, I also recognize that I have to establish standards right from the beginning without the child feeling authority hanging over them.  Using cello examples, this seminar will discuss how to create this balance right from the first lesson.

Course full.
