Piano Pedagogy at the University of Kansas
“Learning without thought is labor lost;
thought without learning is perilous.”
― Confucius, The Sayings of Confucius
Piano pedagogy is the art and science of teaching piano. Becoming an excellent pianist is a key part of becoming a good piano teacher--but there is much more. KU piano pedagogy programs provide the curriculum and mentorship that will help you build the teaching career you deserve.
In KU’s piano pedagogy programs you will:
- Continue your pianistic growth by studying with a member of the KU Artist-Faculty
- Participate in highly focused seminars delving into the latest scientific research on effective teaching, motivation, practice and innovative uses of technology
- Apply these concepts in hands-on teaching
The best way to improve your teaching is by learning and putting that knowledge into practice. The diverse and interesting courses of the KU Piano Pedagogy program gave me the necessary tools for success.
