Cancelled! Dr. Laura Williamson Lectures at Jacobs Music in Doylestown Wednesday, November 14, 2018 at 10:00AM

Willow Grove Chapter of the PA Music Teachers Association presents: 

Have you ever found yourself wondering, "Why aren't my students better sightreaders?" or "I wish my students were better practicers (if they do practice at all!). 

The answer to these questions will be given at next week's workshop.

Laura Williamson, known as a "teacher's teacher," will address these topics. Laura, who holds Masters and Doctoral degrees in Performance and Pedagogy will bring a wealth of experience to her presentation and will offer strategies and insights into these important topics.

If you have never attended any of Ms. Williamson's workshops, I can tell you that you will not be disappointed.

*Developing Good Music Reading Skills in Students of All Ages

*Strategies for teaching note-reading, interval, and pattern recognition, keyboard topography, and the skill of sight reading.

*Also Teaching Students How to Practice

Bucks County Association of Piano Teachers members are invited to attend free of charge.

Reminder Clipper Erickson Concert November 11, 2018

 Bucks County Association of Piano Teachers member Clipper Erickson presents:

On November 11, the centennial of the end of WWI, at 7:30 at Rock Hall on the Temple University Campus, I will give one of the most meaningful programs I have done in the last several years. I'm privileged to give the first performance of Laurie Altman's Sonata #10 "Aleppo" - a deeply moving and masterful work commemorating one of the seminal tragedies of our century so far. Paired with this is Nathan Dett's Eight Bible Vignettes - his final work expressing home for a new beginning for humanity. I hope that many of you can share this great music with me!

Warm regards and greetings,
Clipper Erickson
