Launching the Intermediate Phase: The Joy of Shifting, Vibrato, and Double Stops with Charles Krigbaum and Daina Staggs

Charles Krigbaum and Daina Staggs will co-present a content-rich, lively and engaging lecture directed towards teachers of violin students at the intermediate level. The content is based on the unique idea that purely technical exercises can be transformed into short musical experiences. The unification of technical work with musical elements leads to a more enjoyable, confident, and thorough learning of technique, leading to expanded possibilities for musicianship in the advanced level. Teachers will receive in-depth handouts on the content of the session.
Sunday October 25th, 7:00pm-8:30pm EST

This session is FREE FOR ASTA MEMBERS and open for a small fee to non-members.

**This session will be recorded***
