TALENT DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP
• Cutting edge pedagogical techniques, lectures
• How to solve technical problems
• Practice sessions supervised
generations of music teachers and students,
the standard pedagogy has long been methods
that boiled down to repetition, repetition and
repetition — working, and perhaps overworking, the
left brain and ignoring the right brain. While there’s
no denying that the repetitious style of pedagogy
has been successful, how many enthusiastic young
string players have given up simply because the
repetitiveness of the lessons and the practicing dulled
their innate senses of creativity and excitement?
Vasile Beluska has developed a teaching technique
he calls simply “Talent Development”, which appeals
first to the human element in the student, recognizing
that he or she is not a machine and doesn’t learn as a
computer does. Beluska has been giving lectures to
conference audiences on this subject for several years
and now is presenting a small-group, 5 day workshop.
Participants from the younger students to the
older and experienced professionals will gather for
concentrated, “total immersion” in the art and science
talent development and teaching and playing the violin.
Utilizing known neurological research in right brain
activity, his own insights as an artist and teacher, and
important left brain activities of practice — Beluska
developed The Seven Commandments and The Seven
Stages of Practicing as tools with which to uncover in
a student perhaps hitherto unknown pools of creativity.
