GP3 2014

Beyond The Degree: Real World Teaching

August 1–2, 2014
University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music

The executive committee of GP3 formed GP3 2014 with these thoughts in mind: Are we truly equipping our pedagogy students with skills that will prepare them to teach when they graduate? How much of what we teach translates to excellent teaching, and how much is simply because the student is a “natural?”

GP3 2014 has as its goal to review what is essential in quality group teaching and private instruction. We invited experts in both group teaching and private teaching to share their ideas and successes. And, as usual, we feel it is invaluable we share with each other.

In 2000, GP3 launched its first meeting at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music as a grassroots forum with an emphasis on the practical aspects of teaching. In 2006, GP3 entered a partnership with MTNA, allowing both groups to meet the specific needs of group piano and piano pedagogy professors in the practical way that remains the GP3 mission:

GP3 Goals

  • Share in concrete ways what we are doing in our day-to-day teaching
  • Discuss how the direction of our field is affecting our approach to professional development, program initiatives, and teacher training
  • Plan how we must contribute to the course of group piano and piano pedagogy now and in the coming years

GP3 Forum Cloud Project

At the recent GP3 Forum in Austin, Texas, teachers were asking for a way to share resouces and idea. Out of these discussion the Cloud Project was born. This project is now active through a shared DropBox folder. If you are interested in participating in the GP3 Cloud Sharing Project please refer to the introduction and guidelines below.

If you have further questions, please contact Courtney Crappell.
