More internet resources for teaching

As a follow up to the last post about piano teaching on the internet, I thought I’d make another short list of a few more great resources for information on the internet.

  • If you’re on facebook, there’s lots of great resouces to check out.  There are a number of groups on Facebook that piano teachers can join.  It can be exciting to hear ideas from piano teachers all over the world! Here’s our page.
  • Another place to check out is the website Colour in my piano.  This is another page with some great resources.
  • Thirdly, check out your local library’s website.  The library has great online resources, awesome books, and you can request books from anywhere in the province and pick them up at your local branch.

Walter Thiessen Festival Class

The Walter Thiessen class is new to the Saskatoon Music Festival this year.  It was put together by the RMT Saskatoon Branch to honour Walter Thiessen, who was great piano teacher and long time member of our organization.  Below is a little information about this class, as found in the Saskatoon Music Festival’s local addenda to festival classes.  This can be found on the Saskatoon Music Festival’s website.

This class has been setup to support and celebratepiano students at the Grade 10 level. There is a $300 scholarship which will be decided at the discretion ofthe adjudicator. The competitor must prepare three (3) contrasting selections from the Grade 10 repertoire – RCM or Conservatory Canada. The scheduling of this class will happen towardsthe end of the General Festival week.
