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.”

Ginny Godsey – San Antonio, TX

Wondering How Instagram Works?

In case you were wondering….. I plan to use my Instagram account to shoot you some video tutorials for the Play-Along beginning on Monday, June 1.   With Instagram being so “instant,”  it’s a much quicker way for me to post short videos with text underneath and you can reply instantly with a tap of your finger.  Believe me, IG (Instagram) is easy (and easier on the eyes in my opinion).  It’s similar to Facebook, but without all the “noise” in the sidebars.

instagram-logoWhat exactly is Instagram?

Instagram is a free photo and video sharing app available on Apple iOS, Android and Windows Phone. People can upload photos or videos to Instagram through the app and share them with their followers or with a select group of friends. They can also view, comment and like posts shared by their friends on Instagram. Anyone 13 and older can create an account by registering an email address and selecting a username. Read More

Indispensables of Piano Teaching #5 – EVERNOTE

Evernote AppI just recently discovered EVERNOTE and I really, really wish I would have known about when it was first released in 2011.  It has cleared clutter from my desk, my desktop, and my head!  I have all sorts of teaching-related info stored there now instead of on my computer desktop or on paper (studio to-do list, music to purchase, students’ festival/contest application info, etc.)  If you use Evernote, please share ideas of how you find it valuable for your studio or day-to-day organization as a busy professional.

#5 – EVERNOTE

Evernote is digital software that helps you store information so it can be at your fingertips wherever you go.   Think of it as a highly organized digital filing cabinet that you dump anything into — reminders, to-do lists, vital info, receipts, business cards, audio, photos, and on and on…..

You’re probably thinking: “Not another tech learning curve, please!”  I hate learning curves too, but Evernote is incredibly easy to learn, rather intuitive, and it’s FREE!

Everything you store in your Evernote account (stored on the web) is automatically synced across all of your devices, making it easy to capture, browse, search and edit your notes everywhere you have Evernote, including smartphones, tablets, computers and on the Web.

I found this video tutorial quite helpful in getting started.  I learn so much faster with a visual demo rather than by reading a guide. 

Sign up for your FREE  Evernote account HERE.  All you need to is your email address and a password.  You can sign up via the web, like I did, and then download the app afterwards, or just download the app first.  Either way works and it will all sync up between your devices.

I like Evernote’s clever use of an elephant for their logo.  See how the elephant’s ear flaps over like the page of a note?

And an elephant never forgets, right?
