This two-day workshop is designed for string or non-string specialists who teach elementary, middle, or high school orchestras. The Conservatory String Teacher Institute (CSTI) is a wonderful opportunity for orchestra directors to develop their teaching skills. Through hands-on experiences, participants will attend a variety of clinics that focus on string technique, rehearsal skills, student engagement, and other relevant topics for today’s orchestra programs. Time will be provided for networking with other participants and workshop faculty. The workshop will be led by Mr. Jim Palmer (ASTA’s Elizabeth A.H. Green School Educator Award recipient) and Dr. David Pope (Baldwin Wallace Conservatory). Participants will earn 1 graduate credit hour that can be used for Professional Development.
