As you may have read in the last few days, the Center for Young Musicians hosted a National Teacher Training Workshop for Musikgarten. Two of our teachers enrolled for this training, earning certification in the Music Makers at the Keyboard curriculum!
Ms. Grace, piano faculty, and Mr. Ryan, cello and piano faculty, attended the 17-hour training, held at our Sewickley location, along with four teachers from the northeast region of United States. Our CYM teachers are excited to be offering the first Music Makers at the Keyboard classes, along with Ms. Amy, this year at CYM!
Ms. Grace said about the training: “The Music Makers at the Keyboard training was a positive, whirlwind of a weekend! The training was full of hands-on experience, getting useful information on how children develop and learn, and being surrounded by other teachers who are so passionate about providing quality music education.”
Mr. Ryan made this observation about the Musikgarten philosophy, which takes children on a pathway to music literacy: “Musikgarten’s approach first connects students to the instinctive, singing flow at the center of all artistic expression– and maintains this focus as they progress through practical piano skills. Through the three-year program, students learn music from the inside outward, with the piano merely a simple extension of their natural, singing selves.”
Congratulations on your certifications, Mr. Ryan and Ms. Grace!
