Jane Magrath is now giving a workshop entitled Teaching Literature for Piano: Outside the Box
Purpose is to remind us of some pieces that perhaps we have forgotten about.
Teaching inside the box means that we maintain the status quo. Teaching outside the box is exciting and interesting for the students and ourselves.
She is exploring literature in the following categories:
The Baroque Boys
Sonatina Motivators…and More
Romantic Characterization and Albums for the Young
20th Century Spark
Flash and Spark
Dr. Magrath has compiled a selection of pieces that fit into each of these categories and is giving brief explanations of each one and playing through excerpts of them for us.
UPDATE: Dr. Magrath has graciously set up this site where you can download a copy of the handouts from this workshop.
