Discussion of teaching points and development of technique and musicianship through Book 2 Suzuki Cello School.

Based on the successful Teaching Strategies offered in conjunction with every unit in Latin American Suzuki teacher courses, Cello Unit 2 with Strategies is both a Book 2 level teacher development course AND a pedagogy masterclass. As an integrated course, Cello Unit 2 with Strategies offers participants an unparalleled opportunity to deepen their understanding of Book 2 teaching as they examine and grow their own teaching skills.
