Music Education now includes smart phones, tablets and digital equipment.

Technology is as familiar to today’s piano students as the unique arrangement of black and white keys is to pianists. In fact, studies show that digital pianos are outselling their acoustic (upright) cousins at a rate of six-to-one Worldwide. That means that more and more piano students are beginning their journey with technology and – as a “cool” piano teacher – it’s critical that you speak that language well!

You know that technology can help you and your students, but where do you begin? Digital pianos, tablets, MIDI files, apps – there are many options, but how do you find the best solution for you?

Roland's Laura Zaruta is a piano educator and clinician.

Join us for a hands-on practice session where we all become students again! Sit at a piano with your tablet and smart phone, and experience a lesson from the perspective of a modern piano student. Watch how fun and productive technology can be as we work through a basic lesson plan together. You’ll see the real-life applications for many of these simple technologies and you’re guaranteed to find at least a few things that are perfect for your studio.

Don’t miss this interactive workshop with Piano Educator, Roland Clinician and Lifetime Student, Laura Zaruta. Admission for this program is free, but since everyone will be at a piano we ask that you RSVP to Heather Hamilton by Saturday, February 27.

Let’s get digital together! See you there!
