Make Me a Match: Getting Kids on the Right Instruments from the Beginning

  • thumbnail for Erin Cole
  • Students must be matched to the appropriate instrument (or instruments) if they are to be successful in the long term. The presenter will describe the particular student characteristics that may and may not be suited for a given instrument. She will also present strategies for motivating students toward an instrument they may not initially choose.
