The Many Facets of Studio Teaching: Exploring Key Areas for Success! 

Gain innovative ideas and reinvigorate your studio teaching preparations! Join us Sunday, August 28 at 6:00 p.m. EDT for an ASTA eLearning webinar, featuring Drs. Lynn Ledbetter and Theodore Buchholz. The session will address the specific needs of private teachers who work with all ages, from pre-kindergarten beginners to adult learners. The presenters will explore: 

  • Recruiting students, building supportive networks, and meaningfully engaging the community; 
  • Resources for running a studio, from studio policy templates to a brief look at taxes; 
  • Preparing students for auditions: from chair placement to college auditions; and 
  • Providing resources for enhancing your teaching repertoire. 

Dr. Ledbetter and Dr. Buchholz serve as the Chair and Vice Chair, respectively, of the ASTA Studio Committee, a group that focuses on the needs of the private studio within the string teacher community. Time will be provided for questions, however, participants are encouraged to submit questions or requested topics for discussion in the registration form. This will ensure that your questions and topics are given priority when you register for the event.
