DVMTA members gathered at My First Piano Recital Hall, in Mesa, as well as virtually, to attend the September General Meeting. We were privileged to have Elizabeth Gutierrez, NCTM, as our guest and presenter, through a webinar platform. Elizabeth shared her approach to teaching students to be better readers through Five Pillars: Eye Tracking, Keyboard Geography, Rhythm Reading, Note Reading by Pitch, and Note Reading by Interval. She also demonstrated helpful activities to teach these principles to beginning students, transfer students, and students needing to review their note reading skills. She is a wealth of information, and we are so happy she took the time to meet with us and share her knowledge and techniques. In addition to this webinar, members were invited to view her online course and webinar offerings at pianoteacheracademy.com.
