The online course consists of six pre-recorded session videos. Each session lasts 90 minutes.
Each session will consist of a lecture-style presentation, followed by a question-and-answer session for further clarification.
Recordings of these lectures will be shared with all registered participants.Â Â
In this course, Suzuki and traditional violin teachers are invited to explore and work intensively with the materials presented in Step by Step, Vol. 1AÂ andÂ My First Technique BookÂ with the authorÂ Kerstin Wartberg.
The course will examine the step-by-step mastery of the teaching points in the 1A repertoire and strategies for effective teaching of the fundamental principles of violin technique in the early stages, with a special emphasis on building a healthy foundation and developing musicianship and sound quality in young children.Â Parent Education will also play a vital role in this course.
Charles Krigbaum and Daina StaggsÂ have worked closely with Kerstin Wartberg for many years.Â They have been involved in the development of new teaching materials and have tested and piloted these materials with many students since 2005. As co-presenters of the course, they will assist Kerstin in demonstrating the principles and applications of the course content to individual and group teaching.

- sheet music
- audio files that are very useful for both online and in-person lessons.
