  • Designed for the non-string player/Band Director, this session presents a practical path for retooling your skills to become a string and orchestra teacher and why this is a good idea. Jeffrey Albright, trumpet performance graduate from The Juilliard School and presently a string teacher in the Fairfield, Connecticut Public schools, will co-present as an example of one who has followed this path.
