Workshop Information

Timing and Fees 

This 10 hour workshop gives the teacher a practical and child friendly way to develop the complete bow arm from Pre-Twinkle to book 10 and beyond.  This workshop will make teaching beautiful tone and a bio-mechanically effective bow arm fun for the child and easy for you.

Complex right arm concepts will be made simple for the children with the help of a cast of child-friend characters: Panda, Jelly Fish and Rabbit.  Advanced bow strokes (spiccato, staccato, bariolage and more!),  for the more advanced students will be made instantly better using Cathryn's "magic" formulas.  

Join us, and be sure to bring your instrument as we explore the bow arm from Pre-Twinkle to book 10 and beyond.  This course enrollment is limited to 25 students. 


Full workshop attendance is required for completion as an enrichment course recognized by the SAA.  All teachers must own or purchase the three book set by Cathryn Lee.  These course materials are only available for purchase to workshop registrants.  The course material fee is $75 collected with registration.  (If you are repeating the course, you do not need to purchase the materials).   Materials will be distributed during the registration Saturday morning.
