SHAR BLOG: Resources for parents, teachers & students
Facebook Groups, Websites, Blogs & Podcasts
The primary aims of this Facebook group are to create an international network for music teachers and to facilitate an active and enriching exchange of excellent and helpful TEACHING IDEAS.
The group was created by Kerstin Wartberg as an open space, in which music teachers from all over the world can share and discuss—freely and at no cost—their ideas on teaching and performance, exchange resources, share their own compositions and videos of their students or those of great performers playing student literature, and other forms of support for the worldwide community of interested and dedicated music teachers.
Violin performance engages the physical, the psychological, and the musical abilities of the player. Mimi Zweig's fundamental principle of violin teaching, based on natural physical motions nurtured in a non-judgmental environment, embodies all three of these elements of performance. The development of a facile and secure technique begins with physical freedom. This then gives the performer the freedom to play with musical sensitivity and confidence.
