    "Every Parent Can Too!"

    Sharpen your parent education strategies in this presentation for Suzuki teachers

    Presenter: Karen Christensen

    Join me as I describe the parent education mini-course (two meetings) I give to each practice parent before they start their Suzuki journey. Although these meetings are indispensable, I feel that the most important parent education comes after they have started their journey and are encountering obstacles and attempting to organize their practice. I will share the materials I present to parents as they start their Suzuki journey, and the handouts I give to accompany the early books, as well as my "personalized assignment sheets". I am looking forward to hearing others ideas and discussing the ways we can make the Suzuki journey less stressful and more successful for our Suzuki parents. 

    When: Wednesday May 15, 10am-12pm

    Where: Studio of g Ordun, Vienna, VA (address will be emailed upon registration)
