Columbus Suzuki Piano Workshops

Columbus Suzuki Piano Workshops
Columbus, OH

The Columbus Suzuki Piano Workshops are offered by Mary Craig Powell and are exclusively for piano teacher training. Mary Craig’s reputation as a Suzuki piano teacher trainer is one of international proportions and has given her extensive invitations throughout the world to train teachers and teach children. At the Columbus Suzuki Piano Workshops, teaching of students for observation is provided by her students plus some additional local students. Our goal is to offer these workshops to enable you to immerse yourself in the Suzuki philosophy and to learn how it applies to teaching the piano while here. We are especially delighted that through this particular workshop structure you view actual studio lessons which incorporate all aspects of the students’ learning including: using the Suzuki philosophy in your instruction, teaching the Suzuki literature, instruction in reading music and the parent participation in the lessons.
