10 Project #1 Write Your Teaching Philosophy This will include your educational goals for your students.

11 Project #2 Analyze Four Teaching Pieces These four pieces will be given to the teacher after they have registered and paid their fee.

12 Project #2 Analyze Four Teaching Pieces Be sure that you have the requisite knowledge in theory, history and pedagogy BEFORE sending in your registration application and fee!

13 Project #2 Analyze Four Teaching Pieces  When introducing each of the teaching pieces to a student, what would you discuss concerning the historical era, the composer, and the compositional style?

14 Project #2 Analyze Four Teaching Pieces  When introducing each piece, what major elements of theory would you discuss with a student? These elements could, for example, include information such as major key areas, cadence locations and types, important modulations, interesting harmonies, the form of the piece, etc.

15 Project #2 Analyze Four Teaching Pieces  Indicate at least three skills that a student must possess in order to be able to successfully play each piece.

16 Project #2 Analyze Four Teaching Pieces  Discuss how you would teach a historically and stylistically appropriate interpretation of each piece. This could include such elements as articulation, pedaling, dynamics, and ornamentation.

17 Project #2 Analyze Four Teaching Pieces  Identify four potential reading and/or technical difficulties in each piece and discuss how you would help the student solve these problems.

18 Project #2 Analyze Four Teaching Pieces  Discuss where you would mark appropriate practice strategies and/or memory sections in each piece.

19 Project #3 Present Your Teaching Video record three lesson segments with the same student.

20 Project #3 Present Your Teaching We strongly recommend that you begin test recording lessons for four or more weeks before you begin this project. This will give you valuable feedback on camera placement. It will also help you and the student become comfortable with the recording process.

21 Project #3 Present Your Teaching Video record three lesson segments with the same student:  The first lesson segment should be 30 minutes long, and include the beginning stages of introducing a new piece (such as an Allegretto from a sonatina).

22 Project #3 Present Your Teaching Video record three lesson segments with the same student:  The second lesson segment should be 15 minutes long, and should feature continued work on the Allegretto.

23 Project #3 Present Your Teaching Video record three lesson segments with the same student:  The third 15 minute segment should include the same student polishing and finishing the Allegretto.

24 Project #3 Present Your Teaching Video record three lesson segments with the same student:  These three lessons can be at any level and stretched over the amount of time that it takes this particular student to achieve a mid-point and final lesson on this particular piece.

25 Project #3 Present Your Teaching Additional written materials:  Give a list of the materials used in all the recorded lessons.

26 Project #3 Present Your Teaching Additional written materials:  Write a self-evaluation of each recorded lesson segment. Each self-evaluation must address at least three areas from a list of topics that are given in the Teacher Profile workbook.

27 Project #3 Present Your Teaching Additional written materials:  Discuss the student’s learning modality and how you adapt the lessons to this student’s learning style. For more information on learning modalities we recommend that you read:

28 Project #3 Present Your Teaching Additional written materials: 1.PPFpp.html by Susanna Garcia 1.PPFpp.html Spring 2008 (Vol. 19, #2) – “How would you teach the same piece of music to students with different learning styles?” by Suzanne Torkelsonwww.claviercompanion.com

29 Project #3 Present Your Teaching Additional written materials:  Provide your goals for this student in the next 14 to 16 weeks in the areas of repertoire, theory and technique.

30 Project #3 Present Your Teaching Additional written materials:  Document how you assess the outcomes of your teaching – these can include adjudication sheets, recital CDs and programs, etc. for any of your students from the past several years.

31 Project #3 Present Your Teaching In addition to the three teaching segments, on the same DVD video record your performance of 5 to 10 minutes of pieces that are at least an upper intermediate or early advanced level. For pianists, they must be listed as a Level 7 or above in The Pianist’s Guide to Standard Teaching and Performance Literature by Jane Magrath. These pieces do not have to be memorized.

32 Project #3 Present Your Teaching For other instruments, the benchmark for the appropriate level of your performance repertoire is given (e.g. Level 8 on the ASTA lists for violin). All the repertoire in your 5 to 10 minutes of performance should be at least a late intermediate level. The music does not have to be memorized.

33 Project #4 Share Information About Your Teaching Environment

34 Project #4 Share Information About Your Teaching Environment Describe how you encourage a positive teaching environment in your studio.

35 Project #4 Share Information About Your Teaching Environment Show at least three resources that you use to promote this positive learning environment. These might include photographs and/or video recordings of:  Studio or classroom  Acoustic and/or electronic instruments  Computers and software  Audio/video recording equipment  Practice/incentive charts  Other evidence that would demonstrate a positive teaching environment  Games and art work

36 Project #4 Share Information About Your Teaching Environment Describe how you use the three resources that you documented

37 Project #5 Discuss Your Studio Policies and Business Ethics

38 Project #5 Discuss Your Studio Policies and Business Ethics  Describe how you would ethically deal with three scenarios that will be given to you.

39 Project #5 Discuss Your Studio Policies and Business Ethics  Document your professional, financial and business policies. This includes your studio policy, how you conduct interviews, and a hypothetical budget.
