Speaking Engagements

True to teacher form, I *LOVE* the opportunity to “talk shop” with groups of colleagues.

A Christina Whitlock presentation always includes my trademark enthusiasm, interactive elements, as well as solutions honed over the last 24+ years of my independent teaching career.

Previous National Conference Sessions include:

  • The Varsity Musician’s Playbook: Commitment-Building Strategies from Team Sports to the Studio
    • Presented at the 2016 MTNA National Conference
  • Adult Students: Playing for Keeps
    • Presented at 2017 MTNA National Conference
  • Making it Work: 21 Tactics for Successful Supplemental Group Classes
    • Presented at 2019 MTNA National Conference

I also have multiple session ideas racing through my brain at any given time. Additional topics of interest – which could easily find themselves in a presentation include:

  • Honoring the teaching profession
  • Positive communication strategies
  • Reflection exercises for healthier independent studios
  • Coping strategies for anxious students (and anxious teachers)
  • The teacher-student relationship
  • Fostering satisfying relationships with your studio families
