I will never forget my first experience at NCKP (The National Conference on Keyboard Pedagogy). I remember excitedly telling friends and family: “This is the best conference I have ever been to!” I felt I learned much from each session and came away from the experience with new ideas and inspiration to add to my teaching for the year.
This year, I am eagerly awaiting my flight to Chicago for NCKP 2015. The program looks to be stellar! I am looking forward to thought-provoking keynote speakers, excellent performances, and workshops that will give me tools for the “how-to” questions of teaching. There are sessions that cover a wide range of music–from classical to pop, from reading to rote teaching.
Each night, I am eager to immerse myself in the evening concerts. The opportunity to hear Sean Chen is a special one indeed! And, I can’t wait for the banquet honoring Ingrid Clarfield and Dennis Alexander–two of our field’s great pedagogues.
If you haven’t already done so, register now for NCKP. You won’t regret it!
