Welcome to the Jacobs School of Music 2023 Retreat for Violin and Viola Teachers. This summer we are planning an intensive 8-day Face-2-Face course, and concurrently, an online course for auditors. The Retreat gives string players and teachers the opportunity to participate in an intensive Jacobs School of Music String Academy Pedagogy Workshop. Each workshop will incorporate the philosophies of Shinichi Suzuki, Paul Rolland, and Mimi Zweig.
We will reserve 30 places for full Face-2-Face participation which will include attendance at all lectures, classes, observation of String Academy teaching and student master classes, student concerts, the Retreat Notebook which contains invaluable teaching information, and a combination of 3 hours of either your own individual private lessons, mini master classes, and/or String Academy faculty observing your teaching.
Online participation will be open to auditors whose registrations will include attending all lectures and the Retreat Notebook. All lectures will be recorded and available for viewing online for a month following the Retreat.
Applications are being accepted.
