TOPIC: Transform your Teaching
Whether you’ve taught for years, or recently opened your first studio, this fun, inspirational session will equip you with ideas and strategies to improve the quality and enjoyment of your teaching, and make a lasting impact on your students’ lives. As Bonnie shares her own musical journey and stories of many students she’s had (yes! all the stories are true!), teachers will identify with the problems and delight in the solutions. Highlighting the teaching strategies Bonnie has developed during 35 years of owning her successful studio, she’ll share the novel tools and inspiration you need to create the studio of your dreams, full of students who love their lessons and their teacher.
