This review is from: Professional Piano Teaching: A Comprehensive Piano Pedagogy Textbook for Teaching Elementary-Level Students (Paperback)
I purchased this text as a resource for my undergrad B.A. project. Little did I know that this book contains a wealth of information ranging from practical advice for new and experienced piano teachers to very clear explanations for why we teach what we teach. It is well organized. Each topic is well-placed and easy to find. There are detailed descriptions within the chapter on technique and musical sound development that are priceless. There are plenty of examples, tables, lists, etc. I believe I have stumbled upon a resource that won't stay on my shelf too much. It will be "well-used"!

This review is from: Professional Piano Teaching: A Comprehensive Piano Pedagogy Textbook for Teaching Elementary-Level Students (Paperback)
Dr. Jacobson explains the art of piano pedagogy in the most comprehensive text available. New and experienced teachers alike will benefit from her expertise in the field of piano teaching. She is very dedicated to making us the best teachers we can be! This book is essential for every music teachers library as a reference and inspiration!!!

Sincerely,

4.0 out of 5 stars good resource, July 8, 2011

This review is from: Professional Piano Teaching: A Comprehensive Piano Pedagogy Textbook for Teaching Elementary-Level Students (Paperback)
This is a terrific resource to have on hand. It has been several years since I've graduated from music school, and it was good to have a "refresher".

One of the things I was hoping to find, but was not included in this book, was ideas and techniques for teaching children with learing disabilities, specifically ADHD.
