A Model of Excellence: A Workshop for Teachers to Improve their Teaching and Performing Abilities
Being a "model of excellence" is the most important attribute that a good, no great, teacher can have.
Students imitate both our good and our not so good habits, therefore we need to model excellent tone, excellent phrasing, excellent technique and excellent musicianship in our lessons. In short, we need to be a model of excellence.
For instance, if you secretly feel like your fourth finger is weak or your octaves just don't "feel right", chances are your students feel the same way. Sorting these issues out in your own playing is like putting your mask on first. Once you've done that, then you can help others!
Teachers who are interested in improving their skills are invited to participate in our all day, online interactive workshop on preparing for the Certificate/Associate Teaching Diplomas. The workshop is suitable for budding teachers as well as those with more experience. This workshop is also relevant for teachers who don't wish to prepare for the whole diploma, but wish to sharpen up their skills. Click here for full details of the scheduled topics.
