JHUI Teaching Masterclass

The JHUI Teaching Masterclass is open to all current and former JHUI students. It is a full day of peer teaching, sharing, review and mentoring; a chance for JHUI Certified Teachers to get helpful feedback, renew their enthusiasm for ukulele and connect with like-minded teachers!

How Does It Work?

The JHUI Teaching Masterclass is a one-day intensive divided into four Masterclasses, each with a unique theme (e.g. "Melody" or "Harmony" or "My Favourite Thing To Teach"). Each masterclass comprises two 30-minute segments during which a teacher presents his/her teaching strategy to the group and receives constructive feedback from James Hill and the class (see sample schedule below).

You are NOT required to present a teaching strategy at the Teaching Masterclass. Being a presenter is encouraged but is entirely optional. As a bonus, your registration fee includes a catered lunch plus a coupon to get 50% off the cost of auditing the JHUI Institute (held in the two days immediately following the JHUI Teaching Masterclass).
