Seminars are designed to create teachers as well as musicians by covering pedagogy, performance, student evaluations, and musical selections. Student-Teachers share what they have taught and learned with each other by giving constructive criticism and self-evaluating their growing skills. They also learn important life skills such as building their own business, drafting contracts, managing money, and creating lesson plans.
Classes and seminars are administered and headed by Tina Caplan Weiss and Kristine Sillona.
The following have been trained as teachers by the SCPC Foundation.
