Talk About Teaching:  See Dates below for the 2018/2019 Workshops

Talk About Teaching is a series of 5 meetings that take place every 2 months from September – May from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.  The meetings provide a place for teachers to discuss ideas related to music and teaching.  Topics listed below provide a starting point for discussion; however, any area of interest is fair game!  All teachers in the DC, VA, and MD area are welcome; there is no fee.  Bring ideas, solutions, questions, & answers.  This forum is a wonderful way for us to share experiences and learn from each other.
