Group Classics: Strategies and Ideas for Inspiring Suzuki Group Classes
Amy and Christopher Matherly
Group class is the heart of a successful Suzuki program. We all know that offering group classes is vital to our students' development as musicians - but how do we get a group class program going and what do we do once we get the students there?
You will find the answers to these questions and more in Group Classics: Strategies and Ideas for Inspiring Suzuki Group Classes. Veteran teacher Amy Matherly offers both advice regarding group class program organization and maintenance, and detailed student-tested lesson ideas gleaned from over 30 years of group class teaching experience.
In Group Classics, you will find over 100 activities, organized around 9 broad themes, that will keep your groups learning, growing and having fun for years to come. Group Classics was written from a violin teacher's perspective but all of the lessons can easily be adapted for any bowed instrument - and most will work for any instrument.
Whether you're just getting started or have an established program, if you've ever wondered what you were going to do with your next group class, you'll find Group Classics an invaluable addition to your teaching library.
Group Classics has the same helpful design features as all of our publications - spiral binding to allow the book to lie flat on a music stand and spacious formatting to provide room for your own notes on individual activities.
