Teaching Shifting & Vibrato in Group Settings
Clinician: Dr. Kristen Pellegrino
Synopsis: Teachers often wonder when they should begin teaching shifting and vibrato. Pellegrino will suggest indicators and fun preliminary exercises that you can teach early in a string players development. Then, she’ll offer specific ways to teach shifting and vibrato to violinists, violists, cellists, and bassists in group settings, with activities for beginners (Push-aways, Sirens, Imaginary super glue, finger in collarbone, plus more) as well as advanced players. Bring your instruments and let’s problem solve together!
