Programs for Teachers

Invest in your own growth now could leave positive impact on your students for life


Natural Approach to Cello Teaching

The goal of this course is to share how I combined Phyllis Young's foundational text, “Playing the String Game” with the Suzuki method and my strategies for tactile learning, to help cello beginners enjoy learning the basics of cello by using knowledge they already know to help them feel empowered and connected with their cello teachers and parents. 


This course, The Natural Approach to Cello Teaching, provides ways to help teachers discover each student's individual potential. By starting with what the children already know can help them be motivated and learn without fear. This is a great entry course to get all the tools a teacher will need to start a cello beginner well.
