CelloBello celebrates the completion of its inaugural CelloKids Teacher Training Seminar (August 1-15, 2020)!
Drawing on the vast experiences of a diverse teaching team, this two week-long seminar covered a broad assortment of topics ranging from how to approach a student’s very first lesson to how to incorporate improvisation into a student’s learning. Our course participants included not only seasoned teachers, but also recent school graduates, researchers, and parents seeking new ways to inspire their children to practice. It was designed to give teachers and parents tools to foster a holistic approach to cello playing.
Beyond the 10 classes taught by our renowned faculty, the seminar included bonus sessions featuring special guests Jeffrey Zeigler and Paul Katz. Participants had the additional opportunity to take part in interactive sessions, and dive deeper in discussion over the course content. Sample class topics included: Games that Teach, Anatomy of a Young Cellist, Growing a Cellist, Setting Up Students with a Healthy Foundation, and How to Develop Improvisation and Creativity.
We are so grateful to all of the participants of our inaugural CelloKids Teacher Training Seminar — thank you for making it a success!
