About Music Education: Why Piano Lessons Are So This Century (and.. not)

Monday 23 May 2016
5:00pm

Recital Hall West

Level 1, Sydney Conservatorium of Music Sydney NSW

Elissa Milne is a Sydney-based composer, writer, speaker and educator whose influence on piano pedagogy extends around the globe. Her Little Peppers series is widely used in piano curricula and performance assessment syllabuses (ABRSM, Trinity College London, AMEB, Royal Conservatory of Music, ANZCA, NZMEB, London College of Music) and her advocacy for a repertoire-rich approach to piano pedagogy has resulted in a world-wide grass-roots movement (aka “The 40 Piece Challenge”). Her P Plate Piano series for the Australian Music Examination Board has redefined, for thousands of Australian children, the path to that first piano exam, while her ground-breaking “Getting to…” and “New Mix” repertoire series have become staples for students across Australia. She has lectured in the EPTA Piano Pedagogy course, and as part of the Sydney Conservatorium Piano Teacher Festival, and has been a guest speaker at MTNA, NCKP, MTAC, ISME, and APPCA.

Join us afterwards for light refreshments and a chat with the presenters.
