Intro to Piano Pedagogy: A Summer Study for High Schoolers

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
