Learn Piano Technique In Lawrenceville On Friday

LAWRENCEVILLE, NJ — Christie Peery-Skousen will discuss technique during the Piano Teachers Forum’s monthly meeting on Friday, Dec. 1. The meeting begins at 9:45 a.m., preceded by coffee at 9:15 a.m., at Jacobs Music, 2540 Brunswick Pike in Lawrenceville.

In “Technique: Right from the Start,” Peery-Skousen will uncover the 10 most important techniques that when taught and mastered from the very beginning, will unlock a student’s technical and musical future.
Peery-Skousen is the Master Teacher and founder of Peery Piano Academy, and is the author of the Peery Piano Habits Program, a conservatory style teaching and certification system based on the teachings of Dr. Irene Peery-Fox.

She serves on the faculty of the San Francisco Conservatory Preparatory where she is head of the First Steps at the Keyboard program. Her students are frequent prize winners in local and national competitions and perform as soloists and with orchestras throughout the Bay Area.

The Piano Teachers Forum is an active professional association that has served piano teachers in Central New Jersey since 1981. The goal of the forum is to provide a friendly and supportive atmosphere that allows for an open exchange of ideas and the development of valuable relationships among colleagues.

On the first Friday of each month, it looks to continue to educate and stimulate professional development through its workshops and programs. Visitors are invited to attend the programs for a $20 guest fee at the door.
