Take the

Smart String Teacher Foundation

The summer self-study version of my training.

Would you like to:

Fill in the gaps in your string teaching skills?

Learn to play those instruments you don’t play yet?

Learn how to make amazing progress with your students?

And do it when it’s convenient for you?

Have you been wanting to take my training but

haven’t been able to take it live?

Take my hybrid self-study training this summer!

Why take the SST Foundation?

It’s flexible and fits your busy summer schedule.

It’s the next best option if you can’t take Teaching Strings Made Easy this summer.

Get a solid foundation in my simple step-by-step method – in your own time.

Go back to school ready to achieve amazing results with your students.

You will also get support from me in THREE ways:

You aren’t left to go through the material on your own.

I will support you in three different ways:

1. Weekly drop-ins on Zoom throughout the summer!

Come to get hands-on support with whatever you are working on.

Observe and get valuable hands-on experience helping each other.

Will be scheduled at varying times to cater to different time zones.

2. Asynchronous support in our private FB group.

Post your written and playing assignments and get feedback from me and each other.

3. Up to 2 private sessions with me, if needed.

For those who have difficulty making it to the weekly drop-ins.

You have up to 2 private sessions to use (30 minutes each).

Available to you until the end of the summer.

Foundation Content

As in Teaching Strings Made Easy, the SST Foundation will:

1. Help you master one or more instruments that you don’t play.

2. Train you in my simple, quick and effective step-by-step method for teaching strings.

3. Help you become skilled at troubleshooting and fixing your students’ technique problems.

The Foundation covers about 80% of the content of Teaching Strings Made Easy.
