Sarah Ash - Violinist


January 2020 -

I had the wonderful opportunity to attend the Benedetti Sessions teachers workshop in London.  It was fantastic to be able to learn from some of the best teachers in their field from all around the world, with seminars in conducting, improvistion, chamber music, Kodaly, and aural skills to name but a few.  As a teacher I have learnt many new workshop skills, ideas, and concepts that I look forward to incorperating into my own teaching.
