Upcoming Workshop Newsflash: Becoming the Best Teacher You Can Be

Piano teacher workshop

We are yet to come across a teacher who is not interested in life long learning or who does not wish to be the best piano teacher they can possibly be.

Both of us teach piano pedagogy to beginner teachers as well as more experienced teachers who wish to upgrade their skills. In the process of upgrading their skills, they report:

  • gaining considerable confidence in their teaching ability

  • increasing piano performance skills and technical ability

  • are better able to provide excellent models of performance to their students

  • are able to find excellent solutions to teach a wider range of repertoire

  • go on to teach a wider range of students; and

  • increase their hourly rates and income.

These teachers are happier and more successful and their students become more engaged and responsive learners.

Studying for a CT or ATMusA teaching diploma is a tried and true way to structure this learning. The diplomas covers aspects of pedagogy, psychological development, technical development, repertoire choices and guides teachers to creating a wholistic teaching philosophy and a successful studio. Teachers are rewarded with a highly sought after and respected qualification that will allow them to objectively prove their teaching abilities.

To help get teachers on the road to completing one of these diplomas, we will be running a one-day online workshop on Sunday, September 20, 2020 to show how it is possible to upgrade your pedagogical and performance skills.
