This is a chance to gain some new ideas and share your knowledge with others. Teaching is a serious craft. The responsibilities for those under your tutelage are great and not to be taken lightly. We, as teachers, all need to refresh our skills, energy, and motivation. Workshops like this provide the opportunity to do so.

The most important stage of learning is the beginning stage. If a child has not been “set up” properly or motivated correctly, future failure is automatically built in. And yet, this early stage of teaching is rarely discussed.
If you think that anyone can start a student, I suggest you look at your results and perhaps re-think it all. I challenge anyone who tells me that it is an easy thing to do. Are the young students prepared well enough to go beyond playing “Twinkle, Little Star”? Have their techniques been developed solidly enough for their advancement? Teachers need to ask themselves why the students often do not go beyond a certain level. Why do they quit? It is us or them? This workshop will be geared to give teachers inspiration, motivation, new ideas, and techniques with which to guide their students into success. It is hoped that many teachers will come and share their knowledge with each other and gain new insights. Teaching techniques are forever changing and growing. The one constant thing in the life of a teacher, is that music study should bring great joy to all involved. I hope you will come and share with us your expertise, experiences, and join with us the adventure of teaching in those important early stages.
About Judy Vasek:
Judy Vasek, born in Chicago, holds a Bachelor of Music Education from Northwestern University and a Masters of Music Education with a String Specialty from Indiana University. She has taught students from age 3 through tertiary. She was a member of the string faculty at the University of Kentucky and Indiana University South Bend. She has taught orchestral techniques, coached chamber music ensembles, conducted youth orchestras, given teacher training seminars, taught string technique and pedagogy courses, and organised and directed string workshops in the USA and Australia.
Judy became seriously involved with the Suzuki method in 1971, and became a Certified Teacher Trainer with the Suzuki Association of the Americas in 1991. She was the official Teacher Trainer of the Suzuki Method in Western Australia from 1994-2004.
She has free-lanced with many orchestras in the USA and was Principal Bassist with the Lexington Philharmonic Orchestra, Kentucky for eighteen years. Though primarily a bass performer, she has studied violin technique and teaching extensively, and she became the only person for whom the violin was a secondary instrument to have been awarded a Teaching Assistantship in Violin at Indiana University. She also studied violin teaching with the famous Dorothy DeLay of the Julliard School of Music.
When she moved to Perth in 1994, Judy established the Vasek School for Violin and Strings (VSVS), broadly based on the Suzuki philosophy with its emphasis on the nurturing of the parent-child bond. VSVS is open to children of all backgrounds, and Judy Vasek has an absolute commitment to achieving the maximum potential of each child.
