This month Music Institute of Chicago piano faculty Camille Witos will present a lecture/program about teaching Sonatinas/Sonatas for the North Shore Music Teachers Association.  The program looks at taking stock of one's teaching approach in order to keep it fresh and alive. Mindful teaching — being in the moment, being present with yourself and your student — becomes the playground where change takes place. The presentation will explore practical strategies to prepare and master a Sonatina/Sonata, discuss ideas for effective teaching and take a look at how mindfulness can inspire your teaching and your students’ success while deepening their love of music.

"The love and true passion that Suzuki instilled in each student is inspiring and each day I teach, I want to become the best version of myself to share the passion and love of music."
