Piano Teacher Event

Solving Technical Complexities at the Keyboard

Sondra Tammam

With Professor Sondra Tammam, pianist and pedagogue. A presentation for pianists with emphasis on solutions for difficult passages in repertoire. All piano teachers are welcome! Please register for the class below.

A “hands on” approach allows attendees to bring passages from any piece they are teaching/playing to enhance and supplement their skills. Wellness and healthy habits are essential and enable each pianist to have boundless potential in music making.

Each topic presented will have an anchor piece from one of the Suzuki Piano books to demonstrate the concepts and solutions. The ideas can be fully integrated with other repertoire. Attendees will gain further insight and knowledge by observing each other’s passages being performed. Ultimately, participants can share the concepts and topics explored with their students in lessons.

Suggested repertoire:

  • Book 1: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star – Suzuki
  • Book 2: Minuet in G - J.S. Bach
  • Book 3: Sonatina in C, Opus 36, No. 3: Spiritoso - Clementi
