I play and teach primarily classical music. I do mix in other types of music for variety, such as holiday music in the Fall semester, and movie music and show tunes in the Spring and summer. Most of my students are in the Faber method, but I am also familiar and teach from the Alfred, Hal Leonard, and Bastien methods.
All my piano students do theory exercises. Most of them take the state theory tests. I use Just the Facts and Theory Time for theory, and I also use other supplementary materials for additional practice.
The MTNA was founded in 1876 with the goal of advancing the value of music study and music-making to society while supporting the careers and professionalism of teachers of music. With nearly 22,000 members in 50 states—and more than 500 local affiliates—the MTNA is the preeminent source for music teacher support, where members embody like-minded values and commitment to their students, colleagues and society as a whole, while reaping the rewards of collaboration, continuity and connection throughout the lifetime of their careers.
