As of last night, after our last webinar session with James, the Level 1 Certification Program is now complete and I am now a certified ukulele teacher! It’s been a great year of interesting teaching experiences, personal reflection, focused practicing and surprising revelations about myself. I’m so looking forward to connecting with my fellow teachers again in 2 weeks at the next institute in Vancouver. I hope many of them will be returning and continuing with me on the level 2 course.
The wheels are also in motion for next year’s ukulele course at Castor Valley through the board’s ECCA program! I’m hoping to fill 2 morning classes next fall and this time the program will run for 32 weeks.
As for my next immediate project, I’ll be teaching the ukulele to some violin, viola, cello and guitar students at SuzukiMusic’s Summer Camp next week. The order is to deliver enriching, fun, sing-and-strum music skills for these already budding musicians. Suzukulele time!
