The group class teaching went pretty well! I was, of course, terrified, but I did pretty well not showing it. I had a decent time teaching, and PERHAPS even had fun at times. My biggest problem was that I actually ran out of activities. Next time I need about twice as many ideas, and then perhaps I won’t get to all of them. I suppose that comes with experience.
Our recital went pretty well too. It ended up being very stressful, but we had an appreciative crowd, and I feel great knowing I have now organized and presented my first concert. Next time I need to allow more time for planning/rehearsing, since things kept going wrong–trouble getting music, blizzards, etc.
Moral of story: Need more ideas, need more time.
This weekend is the Suzuki Workshop at CMS–I’ll be observing, and look forward to sharing some things that I learn!
