Mentoring

(updated 8/27/2022)

We are pleased to continue our Music Mentor Program to enable experienced mentors to sponsor string educators in the state, both in the classroom and private studio. Funding from the MNSOTA Board will assist mentors in their time and travel when sponsoring a new teacher.

Interested mentors will be required to attend/view the Mentor Seminar that will provide guidelines and review handouts on mentoring. Our inaugural seminar was offered at the MNSOTA All-State Workshop August 2018. If you were unable to attend, this is available to view online video:

The length and frequency of mentoring sessions will be determined by each mentor/mentee. After completing mentorship observations, mentor and mentee need to complete the Post Mentoring Evaluation Questions in order for mentor to receive compensation.

Apply any time; applications will be considered at each MNSOTA Board meeting.
