Dr. Kirk Moss - “
Teaching Intonation Creatively 
for String Orchestra
” 
This session is a demonstration of very specific strategies to refine intonation in string orchestra or private studio settings. Participants will form a lab orchestra to experience innovative techniques and exercises within an expressive and musical context. Bring an instrument!

Dr. Sonja Harasim - “Tips & Technical Tools for Injury Prevention and Empowering Students through Repertoire Discovery and Diversity
This presentation will focus on two aspects of violin playing and pedagogy. In Part I of this session, Sonja will share specific tips and efficient technical tools that helped her overcome playing-related injuries and prevent recurrence without sacrificing musical intensity. In Part II, she will present repertoire ideas that aim to empower students and promote curiosity by further diversifying the canon of student violin works at all levels of playing. Those attending are encouraged to bring instruments to experiment with techniques and repertoire discussed.
