It will also look at how to critique and offer advice to your on improving students of more advanced pieces. Finally we will look at how to prepare your student for an audition at a further education establishment.

After a lunch break we will have a workshop on how to lay good foundations for jazz teaching taken by Italian jazz accordionist/teacher/festival organiser Renzo Ruggieri who will also give a short concert at the end of the day. The day will also see performances from some of the accordion students at the RAM. The will also be the opportunity to purchase some books and music which might be useful to teachers.
