This August I’ll be welcoming lots of string players to the University of Chichester Conservatoire for the European String Teachers Annual Summer School. I am the Course Leader for the Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching, which is a specialist course taught specifically for and by each instrument family. For example woodwind teachers are led by Paul Harris, singers are led by Janet Murno, pianists are led by Emyr Roberts. It is a unique and specialist course designed for private teachers to deepen their practice and gain a postgraduate qualification. Graduates have the option of going on to complete an MA as well.
At the Summer School I’ll be overseeing the course and I also have the privilege of leading the Lower String Pedagogy classes. It’s going to be a great week and I’m looking forward to meeting lots of new cellists and teachers!
