2024 Conference

Friday & Saturday, September 27 & 28
Leduc, AB

Remember those conference evaluation forms we ask you to fill out each year?  Well, the executive reads every one of them and we are beyond pleased to say that we have found a hotel venue for the 2024 conference so that everything will be under one roof.  This will allow you to slip up to your room between sessions if you need to freshen up and you won’t need to plug in directions to your phone navigation system to find the concert venue.  It’s all there.  The Holiday Inn & Suites in Leduc.

An added benefit of the hotel is that it’s only 5 minutes from the airport so those travelling from afar can fly and take the hotel shuttle.  No rental car required!  And for those driving from Southern Alberta, you don’t need to go into the city of Edmonton proper.  Those of us from Northern Alberta can take the Anthony Henday to get to Leduc. Super easy.

Mark your calendar for September 27-28!  Plan your lessons to allow for professional development.  Your studio parents will appreciate knowing that you are committed to being the best possible teacher for their child.

Our headliner will be Dr. Pamela Pike, Professor of Piano Pedagogy from Louisiana State University.  You may remember Dr. Pike as having presented the webinar called Sight Reading Strategies and Tips to Improve Student Success back in April, 2022.  We are thrilled to be able to welcome her to Alberta in person and we know you will be inspired by her sessions. Our concert will feature the piano duet team of Janna Olson and Leanne Regehr. As always, the concert will be open to the public so if you live in the Edmonton area, you may want to start priming your students early so they can be inspired by some fabulous 4-hand repertoire.

Registration will open in June 2024.
