This clinic will guide you through the steps to teaching composition.
As a piano teacher, have you ever asked yourself...
"How can I help my students understand that the masters were real people who learned to compose just like anyone else would?"
"How do I encourage my student to compose when I'm not a composer myself?"
"Where do composers get their ideas?"
These questions and many more will be answered at our next online clinic, Cultivate Creativity with Composition. You do NOT want to miss this. You will learn how to coach student composing which in turn, will enhance their reading and playing skills too.
What you'll specifically learn from our presenters:
Wynn-Anne Rossi - Learn a streamlined approach to promoting creativity and teaching composition that includes three-minute improv creations to set the stage for composition, tool-based composition exercises, and a peek at Rossi’s “Creative Composition Toolbox” series, books 1 - 6a (not included).
Bradley Sowash - Learn to compose a basic blues on the piano using a clearly-defined process developed by Bradley Sowash for his online jazz piano class. If you can do it, your students can do it!
Leila Viss - Transform students inspiration into professional looking publications with tech-savvy tools. Empower students to notate their work with online software, design a cover page to suit the title, and produce video of them playing their original masterpiece. Feature a world premiere of their original work in a memorable recital.
