Event Description

Suzuki Cello Teaching Strategies may be taken any time after completing
ECC and Suzuki Cello Book 1. The course will cover deepening topics for
Suzuki Cello teaching such as upgrading your praise, feedback, and
communication with parents, lesson pacing, developing teaching
segments, practical advice for teaching, and how to become a better
Suzuki Cello teacher.

Each participant will be required to show at least 1 video of their teaching.
Here are several video suggestions:
• 10-15 minute private lesson with parent visible
• 5-10 or 10-15 minute group lesson
• 10-12 minute ideal fantastic lesson
• 10-12 minutes less-than-ideal (or somewhat horrible) lesson
• Two 5-7 minute private lessons one week apart
• Two 5-7 minute lessons 1 month apart
• In addition to one of the above lesson videos, a 1-3 minute performance
from one of your student.

Daily inspirational readings from various sources will be offered each
evening during the course and a journal book of your choice will be
required for your daily personal reflection. There will be time for each
participant to meet with Dr. O’Neill privately. Please feel free to contact Dr.
O’Neill if you have any further questions regarding ISSI’s Cello Teaching
