We enjoyed hosting a workshop for piano teachers and piano enthusiasts at our Ephrata, PA location on July 26th with Dr. Patricia Powell as the presenter. Dr. Powell discussed novel ways to help students make the most out of their practice time, both at home and in the lesson by applying proven strategies that raise students’ awareness and their ability to focus – important qualities at the piano, in school and in life. Congratulations Dr. Powell on an excellent presentation!
Patricia Powell, D.M.A., is an Associate Professor of Piano and Piano Pedagogy at West Chester University. Her approach to teaching pedagogy and performance aims for the same arrival point: to instill a deep understanding in our students of how the power of music can connect us to others in profound ways, and that both musical expression and creativity are at the root of that understanding.
