Exemplary teaching of elementary piano repertoire has occurred when the student returns to the next lesson playing with enjoyment, accurately and musically. Beginning students must also incrementally develop autonomous processes for learning music, eventually not relying on others. In this webinar, teachers will learn how to introduce repertoire, to create immediate and lasting results with elementary students. The following six strategies will be examined and illustrated: rote, rote to note, partial work-out, complete work-out, play-discuss, and on-own. In order to purposefully use these strategies, teachers must carefully consider the interaction of student capabilities, traits and objectives of the music, practice assignments, and teaching processes.
