Throughout the summer, we are excited to be able to offer several workshops for piano teachers and aspiring piano teachers!

During the workshop, Ms. Rejino will discuss practical and creative teaching tips to use with your students. With Ms. Rejino, you will discover new teaching strategies that are effective and produce lasting results with today’s students.

Many of you may be familiar of Ms. Rejino’s popular works, from the Hal Leonard Student Piano Library and Adult Piano Method series, to her compositions such as Nocturne, Pagoda Bells, and Feelin’ Happy. And you will also recognize some of her arrangements of popular pieces, such as Let It Be, Love Song, or I Will Always Love You.
