Through the Frances Clark Center Residency Program, area teachers have the opportunity to attend seminars on special topics given by master pedagogues. This month, we welcome Dr. Pamela Pike, who will present Facilitating Adult Music Learning on Wednesday, October 30th, from 10:00AM-12:00PM at the New School for Music Study. Working with adult learners in the music studio requires specialized skills and knowledge of adult attributes. This workshop will explore adult learning theory, assumptions, philosophy, motivation, psychosocial, and physical characteristics at various stages of the adult lifespan. Together, we will learn how to apply this knowledge, in the private and group studio, to facilitate meaningful music making and skill acquisition at any stage in the adult lifespan. Pamela D. Pike is the Barineau Professor of Piano Pedagogy at Louisiana State University. Author of over three dozen scholarly articles and Dynamic Group-Piano Teaching: Transforming Group Theory into Teaching Practice (Routledge), Pike is also Editor-in-Chief of the Piano Magazine. She is an award-winning teacher, including the 2019 LSU Distinguished Faculty Teaching Award, and has presented teaching workshops throughout the world.
