Professional Development Initiative

The Society's Teacher Development Committee puts on the Professional Development Initiative approximately every other year. The PDI is a weekend retreat for our self-identified Teaching Members aimed at broadening our horizons, strengthening our connections with each other across the country, and helping us gain new perspectives on our work. PDI tuition and travel is subsidized by the Society to make it accessible to as many members as possible.

The PDI has been a valuable cross-generational opportunity for viol player/teachers, providing input and inspiration for those starting their careers and a source of refreshment and an opportunity to share “best practices” for more experienced players. The Society recognizes that this investment in connections between viol professionals is important to the future of the VdGSA.

For more information about upcoming PDIs, please contact Jane Hershey, Chairperson of the Teacher Development Committee.
