Event Description

Enrichment Course with Dr. Timothy Durbin – “A Survey of Supplemental Literature for Use with Suzuki Books 5 and Up”

This course will look at important literature for the Suzuki Violin teacher to add to their curriculums to ensure that the student is learning all standard violin techniques, idioms, and stylistic periods. Pieces will be played in class and analyzed for appropriate level of use, what technical ideas are presented, what musical ideas are developed and which pieces are the most dense with material to use in developing an intermediate student into the advanced level of violin playing. It will include detailed analysis of complete works for teaching points and ideas incorporated into the pieces.

Registrable as an enrichment course with the Suzuki Association of the Americas.
