Testimonials from previous workshop participants:
► “The OSU String Workshop was an amazing educational experience. I now have a plethora of new teaching strategies and ideas that I am excited to implement in my classroom.”
► “As an oboist teaching grades 6–12, the OSU String Teacher Workshop came highly recommended by many of my orchestra colleagues. I had a great time attending the sessions, meeting/networking with new people and having an opportunity to play tons of outstanding string literature. Everyone was extremely helpful and welcoming to this oboist turned string player!”
► “This has truly been the most informative, hands-on and intense conference/workshop that I have been to. I look forward to returning next year and bringing many of my Texas colleagues with me.”
► “If one were to ask anyone close to me what I have been looking forward to most this summer, their response would be this conference. I just successfully completed my 10th year of teaching music, and this was the most action-packed and fulfilling week!”
► “This conference has been everything and more for me. I am really eager to go back in September with all the new concepts and strategies that I learned!”
► “Every time that I attend the OSU String Teacher Workshop, I gain new insights and strategies that improve my teaching ability. I return to my classroom motivated, refreshed and excited. I remember what first inspired me to become a string teacher and fall in love with our profession all over again.”
► “I do not think I could have gotten this experience anywhere else. It was exactly what I needed. I will cherish this week.”
► “I learned so much to take back with me to my elementary string kids. I will definitely be back!”
► “I have attended this conference several times through the years and I still come away every time with so many new ideas, strategies and affirmations!”
