Hand Position and Finger Independence for the Young Beginner in Piano Pedagogy Class
MSU's graduate level class in piano pedagogy meets weekly to plan and teach a group class of beginning piano students. This class meets on Thursday afternoons at MSU's Community Music School, and is a fun introduction to the piano as well as an excellent training ground for teachers wishing to gain experience teaching very young students in a group setting.
