Description

Class Experience

Students learn practical guidance regarding how to teach piano to beginning students, usually in the 2nd-4th grade age range.  Those enrolled are walked through choosing a primer curriculum, advertising the lesson opportunity, communicating to the parent and student, and teaching a 30 minute class. The class is not designed as the end-all class an effective piano teacher needs, but rather as an introduction to teaching piano students for soon-to-be high school graduates with an interest in pursuing careers in music education. 
I started taking piano as a 7-8 year old elementary student, and I've been learning the instrument ever since.  At college I minored in piano proficiency with my Bachelor's in Communications, and then received my Master's in English Education.  I began teaching my first piano students around 2001.  Although I've also taught Language Arts in numerous classrooms, teaching the piano to individual students has always been my favorite career.  
Each week, students receive an assignment that should only require an hour or less of time.  These are individual assignments that will then be submitted by an attached file or pic in the teacher/student forum or classroom forum on Outschool.  For example, students are often asked to submit a well-developed paragraph response to a prompt posted in the classroom.
Learners will be given handouts to fill out as they watch each recorded class video. Learners will also complete some Kahoot challenges as assignments. Kahoot can be downloaded easily as a free app or accessed online via Kahoot.com.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Students who complete assignments on time are given mostly written feedback through the teacher/student forum.  Students who complete six sessions on time will receive 2 video-recorded teacher feedbacks from Miss Amy - one, upon completion of Session 3, and one, upon completion of Session 8.  On-time assignment submission is necessary for feedback.  Students have until the next class video is posted to complete an assignment.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Students enrolled in the class only need access to the internet and the Kahoot website or app to participate.
