Overview of class

This is a fundamental string techniques and pedagogy course designed to develop basic performance and teaching skills. Emphasis is on playing techniques as well as information about group and individual teaching procedures. This course is primarily a test of your ability to teach yourself through thoughtful practice, reading, and reflection. Since there is more content to be covered than class time available, students are expected to follow through with outside work. Regardless of prior experience, students must demonstrate assimilation of the course content and show progress from entry-level skills.
