Intro to Piano Pedagogy: A Summer Study for High Schoolers

I would love to communicate personally to discuss my vision for this course, but the basics are as follows:

WHEN: Classes will meet for 8 weeks, on Monday evenings from 6:00-7:15. We will begin Monday, June 7th, and conclude on Monday, July 26th.

WHERE: My home studio in Muncie

WHO: This course is designed for pianists who play at an intermediate level (or above), and are entering grades 9-12.

WHY: Contrary to what some may believe, teaching beginner piano skills is an art that requires specific training for optimal results. My goal is to empower young pianists, while helping them (and their potential students) avoid pitfalls that often come with “learning on the job” in this arena.

WHAT: Christina will mentor students through an exploration of materials available for piano teachers, as well as interactive lesson demonstrations, brainstorming sessions, and reflection activities designed to help students develop their own personal philosophy of teaching.

HOW MUCH? Early Bird registration for the full 8-week course is $395 (until April 20, 2021). This includes a custom workbook and additional materials needed to complete the course. After April 20th, tuition will raise to $425.

Students who finish the course in good standing will receive a Certificate of Completion.

The course fee has been designed with the understanding students may miss a class or two due to summer travel plans. While “live” attendance is certainly recommended, if advanced notice of an absence is provided, students will receive a link to a video recording of class, as well as a one-on-one review of the week’s content, not to exceed 30 minutes (max 2).

Enrollment is incredibly limited, to preserve the quality of the intended mentoring relationship.
