Creating a Diverse Repertoire Sequence for Early Intermediate Violinists

Enliven and diversify your intermediate violin students' repertoire with an engaging discussion of different materials by historically excluded composers to integrate with existing repertoire sequences, such as the Suzuki Method. Learn to choose pieces that suit your students' taste and needs while planting the seeds of more advanced techniques and artistry and how to make your pedagogical repertoire reflect the diverse and modern world your students live in.
