Lower Strings Refresher

Participants should have access to at least one of the instruments for the class - Cello or Bass.

Designed for K-12 music educators working with string students, this course will explore topics of technique including balanced posture, tone production, intonation, articulation, shifting, listening skills, and vibrato in cello and double bass playing. We will explore strategies for introducing techniques and trace those techniques through to intermediate levels, focusing on ways to prepare each student for excellence from the beginning. Class discussion and assignments will allow you to develop teaching tools and activities appropriate to your own teaching situation. Participants will play cello and double bass throughout the week to get a hands-on perspective. Please bring a cello and endpin anchor if possible, otherwise, one will be provided.

Required texts:

Essential Elements, Books 1 and 2, for whichever instrument you plan to use for the workshop.
