Webster University will host string music educators from throughout the U.S. on July 21-24 for a string teacher workshop. The workshop is a collaboration between Webster, The Ohio State University (OSU) and the Missouri Chapter of the American String Teachers Association (MOASTA).

Approximately 35 string teachers will gather on campus for daily sessions in teaching and performance on violin, viola, cello and bass, as well as string repertoire, conducting and classroom teaching. Workshop presenters include national and international figures including Robert Gillespie of OSU; Erik Harris (Webster faculty and principal bassist of the St. Louis Symphony); Julie Ellis of Worthington, Ohio; Winifred Crock of Parkway School District, St. Louis; Ann Geiler of M-R Music, St. Louis; Leon Burke, conductor of the Ascunsion Symphony Orchestra of Paraguay; and Paul Davis, conductor of orchestras at Webster University.

“This is a first for Webster to host such a significant national event that brings such experts in the field of string music education to our campus. We are thrilled to collaborate with The Ohio State University and MOASTA as we promote the building of musical culture in our schools,” said workshop host Davis.
