Engaging the Beginning String Students: Making Each Moment a Musical Moment

  • thumbnail for Carrie Lane Gruselle
  • Whether large or small, heterogeneous or homogeneous, the beginning strings classroom can be an oasis of music making and joy, of exploration and investigation of the students’ instruments and their creative processes. The tools we use to create an environment in which every moment can be a musical moment come from the pedagogues who have firmly established the fundamentals of success, and include the ASTA guideline curriculum, and an exploration of the elements of music as experienced at the beginning level.
