4 VIDEO SESSIONS

Warm-Ups? Who, Me? Technical Routines for All Ages
Marvin Blickenstaff, presenter
Physiologists would take exception to what many of our students consider a warm-up (one fast scale and we're ready to go!)  Athletes, dancers, and orchestral musicians have extensive warm-up routines.  Piano students can learn much from these professionals about the concept of warming up, and apply those concepts to their own practice, regardless of development.


Performance Practice Made Easy: Rules of Thumb for the Student
Marvin Blickenstaff, presenter
It is a big job to bring our students to an accurate performance of notes and rhythms. Yet composers indicate details of sound through slurs and phrase markings, and a wide variety of articulations. This workshop attempts to provide students with Rules of Thumb that govern the interpretation of the sound.

A Simple Step-by-Step Start to Major Scales, All Without A Book
Elizabeth Gutierrez, presenter, and founder of Piano Camp for Piano Teachers
Why wait until students can read a scale book and understand key signatures before starting scales? You can start students easily with scales once they know steps and skips at the keyboard. Elizabeth shares a tried-and-true method for introducing scales in a highly visual, auditory, and kinesthetic manner to confirm understanding of all 12 major scales in just a few weeks!

The End is in the Beginning: Coaching a Piece to Performance
Marvin Blickenstaff, presenter
The teacher plays a vital role in guiding the development of a piece to performance. How do we introduce materials to incite curiosity and a desire to learn?  What are the pertinent practice steps? And what are the clues to an effective performance?  Some of these answers are indicated in the score and others must come from the teacher's wealth of experience and personal musicianship.  This workshop helps sharpen our skills as we lead students to effective performance.  Memory techniques are also discussed.

PLUS.... a little "dessert" video by Marvin.

WHAT TEACHERS ARE SAYING....

"Thank you Elizabeth, thank you Marvin - watching this conference right now on replay and finding so many teaching tips. A true gold mine of piano pedagogy wisdom. Such well spent money and time. The info is multi-level and plentiful - am going to have to write notes upon notes!"
Sarah Arnold, Brussels, Belgium

"Marvin's wealth of wisdom and knowledge is remarkable, but I equally enjoyed his humility, kindness and joyful spirit. Thank you Elizabeth for another wonderful Piano Camp for Piano Teachers. I'm especially excited that I will be able to watch the videos over the next year. You're a huge blessing to the piano community."
