Fall Teacher Workshop

with Marilyn O'Boyle

Practice and Accountability

Saturday, Oct. 19, 3:45-5:30 PM

Location: Augustana Lutheran Church

5000 E. Alameda Ave, Denver 80246

$25 for SAC Members, $35 for non-Members

Marilyn will present some ideas and solutions to practice challenges, based

on her 47 years as a Suzuki teacher, teacher trainer, parent and

grandparent. We can discuss these challenges as they show up with

beginners, as well as more advanced students and adolescents.

She will show everyone her Suzuki Practice Book and make it available at

no cost as a download for anyone interested in using it. We will also have

time for questions and answers, sharing what’s worked well for us and

where we still struggle to make Dr. Suzuki’s saying ring true: “Practice only

on the days you eat!”

Open to all Suzuki violin, viola, cello, flute, guitar, recorder and piano teachers
