HOW MUCH DO THE WORKSHOP AND PD SESSIONS COST?
Professional Development sessions and workshops are priced depending on a few factors. For example, where you are in relation to where I am! Also, how long do you want the session to go for? Two hours? A whole day? Over a weekend? You can expect your minimum fee to be AUD$350, and then from there by negotiation. If we live in different states, then flights and possible accommodation may need to be considered too. However, I do travel a lot, so if you are flexible, I can be too and hopefully we can find a mutually agreeable time.
ARE YOUR WORKSHOPS JUST FOR STRING PLAYERS?
My first book is called Strings Together, but all the principles in the book are based on best teaching practice. In fact, in my teaching work, I teach mostly classroom music, and use all of the lessons found in the book with my students. Over the years I have run all of these activities with pitched and unpitched percussion, string groups, and concert band instruments too. Sessions can run with any instrumentation; mixed instruments or everyone on the same instrument!

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO YOU TAKE BOOKINGS?
DO I NEED TO PURCHASE YOUR BOOK TO ATTEND YOUR WORKSHOPS?
Although I love it when people purchase my books, you do not need to buy one to benefit from the sessions. I do find that people tend to buy the books after the session if they have not purchased them already as once you see the activities in action, you'll not want to forget them! THAT I can promise you! However, as all the activities in the book are based on best teaching practise, they will stand alone - with or without the book. If you want to buy the book, check out the Shop page HERE.
