Clinics/Workshops for Educators
Educators will gain valuable insights and confidence participating in these hands-on workshops. Stewart discusses and demonstrates percussion techniques, then circulates and coaches participants as they try them out for themselves.
All topics listed under Clinics and Workshops for Students may be addressed in an Educators’ Workshop, redesigned with a focus on teaching the techniques in the classroom.
Further topics for Educators may include:
- Evaluating Percussion Performance
- Organizing Your Percussion Section
Larger groups may be more suited to a lecture-demonstration and discussion. In this format, Stewart discusses and demonstrates any or all of the topics listed above, as well as his own philosophy of teaching percussion in a junior high or high school setting.
The workshops wrap up with a question and answer session.
