Because of the unique relationship that students and teachers develop, you as faculty are in a position to provide consistent support and help all students reach their highest potential. Come to this presentation and hear about how to support your student’s mental wellbeing.

We all have a desire to learn, but have a preferred learning modality in how we best absorb, process, comprehend and retain information. These preferences are represented in four different overarching learning styles: auditory, visual, kinesthetic, and read/write. As musicians and teaching artists, we tend to be more auditory learners. With the infusion of technology, we have become a more visual society which can present a disconnect in how we, as musicians engage in learning and teaching others. In this discussion, we will learn about the four learning styles, discover what we are, and learn new strategies to best connect with our students and meet their individual learning style needs.
