A Better Way to Practice

While it may be true that there are no shortcuts to anywhere worth going,
there certainly are ways of needlessly prolonging the journey.
We often waste lots of time because nobody ever taught us the most
effective and efficient way to practice. Whether it's learning how to code,
improving your writing skills, or playing a musical instrument,
practicing the right way can mean the difference between good and great.

5th Suzuki Teachers XChange Conference
Remscheid, Germany

Kerstin Wartburg & Ruth Brons in Remscheid, Germany
 













Earlier this month, Ruth Brons &
Things 4 Stringsaccessories
were truly honored to be introduced
by Kerstin Wartburg during the
Germany Suzuki Teachers' XChange
Conference opening ceremony.
Our newest video was received with
enthusiastic applause, and our supply
of samples quickly sold out!  
Highlights of the conference included
reminders of Dr. Suzuki's teaching ideals
by Charles Krigbaum (USA), and the
essentials of tone production by
Simon Fischer (UK).
Ruth especially enjoyed the opportunity
to share another of her innovative teaching
ideas with this lovely group of  colleagues.
See below!
