Please contact Paula here if you are interested in her workshop “Rote Pieces: One Piece of the Pedagogical Puzzle”. She has presented for various music teacher associations in the United States (in person and online) and is tentatively scheduled to present in China in 2020. She focuses on the importance of rote pieces, materials available, how to teach them, and tools to use them for improvisation and composition.
Beginners love exploring the magical sounds of the piano. With their colorful sonorities, impressive repeated patterns, and vast registers, rote pieces give the new student a chance to truly express music from the very beginning. Teachers will learn how to teach by demonstration, gain new tools for creativity in the lesson, and will discover new resources to round out and compliment standard beginning repertoire.
