Effective teaching is the secret weapon of a musical career and event production. It provides a source of income for musicians, a source of interest for event producers, and a way to ensure that Bluegrass remains alive and well for generations to come. This fast paced session will employ several means to demonstrate good teaching methods. Panelists will host speed dating style round table discussions that deal with a wide range of topics including: college prep for young musicians, after school bluegrass clubs, how to get your band into public schools, and how to prepare to teach at a camp or festival. Yup, it’s a lot, so grab that double cappuccino and take your place in the pantheon of next generation music educators.
