Welcome!

This website is designed to help piano teachers interested in developing a network of colleagues and accessing professional development opportunities as well as for parents looking to enroll their children in piano lessons.  We encourage existing members of APTA to log into the members-only area where we have posted electronic versions of our newsletter and a detailed, searchable database.  Should you be unable to find what you’re looking for, please contact us.  We’d be glad to help.

What apps, software, or websites have you found to be useful in your studio?  Share your stories so that others can navigate the [turbulent?] waters of technology.  All levels of tech-teacher savvy are welcome.  Our coffee time chats are held over Zoom with a cap of 15 participants per session in order to keep the conversation flowing smoothly.   

 

Webinar:  “May the Force be With You: Finding Nature in the Notes”
Friday, November 27
10:00 a.m.
Clinician:  Adam Johnson
Bring life and possibilities to musical phrasing through playing with the natural forces behind the notes, whether at student or professional levels.  This simple but powerful dimension will enliven the way you and your students experience music, and will quickly raise the quality of musicianship.
This webinar is part of a series APTA is holding on the fourth Friday of every month.  All past webinars are available in the members sign-in area until August 31, 2021.
