Teacher Certification Workshop
Registrations now full.
Pre-Conference Event 5 – 6 July 2012
The Sassmannshaus Tradition method has been Europe's best selling beginning violin method for over 30 years. It is now available in English, and the translator and co-author Prof. Kurt Sassmannshaus is offering this teacher training seminar to show how the unique aspects of this method can be taught. The method is groundbreaking in its approach for very young children. It features large print and teaches note reading from the first lesson. It focuses on early position playing and introduces advanced left hand and bow technique with familiar musical material. The method is available for all instruments and the double bass book has just been released. You can become a certified teacher by attending this intensive workshop as part of the pre-conference events at AUSTA National Conference.

Violinist, teacher, and conductor, KURT SASSMANNSHAUS is considered one of today’s preeminent violin pedagogues. Chairman of the String Department at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music since 1984, he was recently appointed to the school’s distinguished Dorothy Richard Starling Chair for Classical Violin, a position previously held by the late Dorothy Delay. In 1996, Sassmannshaus expanded the Starling programs and founded “Starling Kids”, a broad based community violin program at CCM and several local schools. This beginning violin program also functions as a teacher training program.
