CLASSICAL GUITAR PEDAGOGY
By Jane Curry
This workshop is designed to give teachers (experienced teachers as well as those newer to the art of teaching) the equivalent of a B12 booster for their teaching health. This interactive workshop will include a look at innovative approaches to classical guitar teaching, a survey of interesting pedagogical research (as a way to inform our own teaching philosophy) and a summary of the latest resources. Teaching nuts and bolts such as identifying student needs/types of learner, lesson structure, technique (when/how much/which way is the best way?) repertoire selection, motivation and confidence building will also be discussed.
