While Bronwen has a great appreciation and gratitude for the 18 years of classical violin lessons she received, it became apparent, as she taught her own students, from the time she was 17, that the traditional way was not necessarily the best way.
Attending Loyola University, New Orleans, her study of music therapy, with some courses in music education, in addition to her own violin studies, reinforced a regimented and incremental approach to teaching that didn’t speak to her. Following her mother’s advice to “find a professor you like and take everything they offer,” Bronwen realized that learning was better when based on human relationships rather than exercises, though she didn’t know how to articulate that awareness at the time.
This awareness became the building blocks of her Fiddle Preacher Method. Preach!Inspired Music Teacher Training has five basic pillars: Be Inspired, Be Perfect, Be Psychic, Be a Coyote and Be a Kook. The weekend is packed with all the wisdom, experience and expertise from Bronwen’s many years of teaching, as well as her own trainings and certifications in Tae Kwon Do, T.E.S.O.L.(Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages), Forrest Yoga 200 hr Teacher Training, Centered City 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training and Certification with D'ana Baptiste, Byron Katie’s 9 Day School, Tony Robbins Unleash the Power Within and Date With Destiny, Dr. Lisa Cooney’s R.O.A.R. weekend , Megan Sillito's "Live Your Magic" weekend, lots of yoga retreats, talking with homeless people and being a person with high personal standards seeking more for her life .
