Re-energizing the Beginning String Classroom: Many Roads to Success

  • thumbnail for Bob Phillips
  • Beginning string teachers teach in many different schedules and environments. In 28 years teaching beginners, I’ve done it all and used many different teaching strategies. No single approach works for everyone but everyone can find a path to success. Teaching is about choices and we will explore the many pedagogical choices, resources and technologies available to contemporary music teachers.
