Posted by / in All Posts, Convention 2014, Local Events, Teaching /

Whilst some of us were having fun at Knox, there was more activity at the Parktown as well!  The morning was extremely interesting – attendees enjoyed Post-Romantic and Contemporary Style followed by a Masterclass on Teaching Chopin’s Most Popular Works by Marc Durand.  Later, Mark Durand and Thomas Yu did a clinic on The Piano Teacher – This is Your Life.

SRMTA Convention 2014 – day two (Knox)

Posted by / in All Posts, Convention 2014, Local Events, Teaching /

Another exciting day at the SRMTA conference!  There was much going on today, and I’m sure the teachers had difficulty deciding what to go see.

At Knox United Church, the morning began with Phoebe Voigts, who gave a great lecture:  Motivating Our Students.  A great topic for all teachers!  The photo is of the attendees warming up our voices.  Members of the Saskatoon Children’s Choir were present to show us how it’s done.

Following this at Knox, Mary-Lou Fallis and Peter Tiefenbach’s first Masterclass of the day was: Performance Skills: Expression in Folk Songs and Contemporary Literature.
