This summer, I will be offering a unique opportunity for high school pianists (those entering 9th-12th grades) to study the basics of piano teaching.
UPDATE: In addition to the Muncie-area course, I am now offering a VIRTUAL option as well.
As someone who was hired to teach at a local music store when she was 14 years old (!), I know all-too-well how steep the learning curve can be for young, competent pianists looking to gain experience teaching private lessons.
It has long been a dream of mine to help developing musicians get a solid start to their teaching careers. This summer, I am turning that dream into a reality.
The Intro to Piano Pedagogy Course will offer an exploration of many important topics, including:
- Method Studies
- Establishing Rhythmic Stability in Beginner Students
- Best Practices for Teaching Notation
- Philosophies of Teaching
- Developing Student Relationships
- Standards of Professionalism
- Best Business Practices
