The Michigan String Workshop is an intensive 3-day experience where participants are immersed in classes designed to help them enhance their teaching in all areas of string education. Classes will be offered on a diverse array of topics including: elementary, middle school and high school rehearsal techniques and repertoire selection; secondary instrument classes for violin, viola, cello and double bass; alternative styles and improvisation techniques; recruitment, retention and program development; incorporating composing activities in the orchestra rehearsal, applications of music technology in the orchestra curriculum; musician’s health and wellness routines; Suzuki principles in the string class; and instrument and bow selection. In the evenings participants will come together for a string orchestra reading session and conducting lab, where participants have the opportunity to bring their favorite string orchestra piece to conduct and receive constructive feedback on their conducting.
