This book is a guide for teaching violin in classes. Teaching violin in a classroom is fundamentally different from individual tuition: the students are different, the objectives are different, the challenges and the rewards are different.
In this guide, Joel Epstein brings years of experience and research in classroom violin teaching. In a breezy and informal style, he covers all the important topics and resources related to the topic, and offers a 12-step course of instruction, including supplemental materials to make violin class a meaningful and rewarding experience for both students and teacher.
The teachers guide is a companion volume to Playing Together: Student Workbook. While the two are meant to be used together, the teacher’s guide contains much invaluable information and guidance, even if you don’t use the student workbook.
