A Beginning Piano Book from a New Galaxy
*10-10:30a.m. Book release party!*
Hear the amusing story of why Ms. Cheroff started writing a piano book about bananas. Alison will introduce her concept of teaching through music, storytelling, artwork, composition, and a free and coordinate technique. The book, with her own watercolors, will be projected onto a screen.
*10:30-10:45: Book signing and refreshments*
*10:45-12: Workshop: Wake Up Your Teaching Year!*
This will be an interactive workshop, with willing pianists from the audience. Alison will teach a beginning lesson from her book, including how to incorporate coordinate movement from the very first lesson.
