"The New School for Music Study’s courses in piano pedagogy are wonderfully inspiring. Ms. Glennon combines the psychological, the musical, and the practical to create a complete picture of effective piano education in the beginning years of study."
- Jason Gallagher
"Sessions are filled with creative ideas, new techniques and fine guest presenters, and we left each class inspired and ready to try something new with our own students. Having an inter-generational cohort of teachers participating, some from afar (Ohio via FaceTime!) was just great."
- Lisa Gonzalez
"I would recommend this course to any teacher... The result was that my students
learned more this year with greater comprehension of concepts and were able
to perform with confidence on the various student recitals I held throughout the year."
- Rick Seifert
