Monthly Lecture Series at the

North Texas School of Talent Education

Following the success of our Summer 2020 Online Lecture Series, we are excited to announce an ongoing monthly opportunity for teachers to gather clear and effective ideas on a variety of pedagogical topics for development and use in their own violin and viola studios. 

Each session will consist of a one hour lecture-style presentation, followed by a 30-minute question and answer session for further clarification. All lectures will be presented on Zoom; following your registration and completion of the payment process, we will contact you via email with Zoom Meeting Room and password information. Recordings of these lectures will be shared with all registered participants, in case anyone is unable to attend the lecture at the scheduled date and time.
 
Participants have the option to register for all 6 sessions ($150) or to create their own series by registering for individual lectures ($30 per lecture). Last year's lecture series is also available as a bundle with all 9 courses (see course titles) for $200. The Online Lecture Series is open to violin and viola teachers of all backgrounds. The Online Lecture Series is offered through the North Texas School of Talent Education and is not eligible for SAA Registration.  We look forward to sharing with you!
