Setting Beginning Students Up for Success: A Pedagogical Model for Beginning Strings.

Children are innately musical and thrive in creative environments that provide them with opportunities to make music with others. Establishing proper set-up from the beginning of a student’s playing career is essential to lifelong success performing a string instrument. Equally important, though, is remembering that we teach students through music.
By incorporating musicianship activities, engaging students’ participatory music-making, and reinforcing good pedagogical foundations from the very beginning, students will be set-up for success.
