Nurturing Students Through Piano Class

My students need the piano lab teaching system and piano books for individualized instruction and feedback during practice and instruction.

My Students

The population range from middle class income to homeless within the school and the school district. The school is the oldest African American high school and has a proud and supportive alumni who continue to assist with keeping up with the school's integrity and tradition. The students are very tech savvy and are very open-minded in learning foreign music. Students who have been placed in some of the music classes offered at the school have expressed their interest in music technology. The students seek lessons that are more engaging through technology based music instruction. Students in the fine arts program are also students who seek immediate feedback. For example, SmartMusic software records and grades their performance. This software helps student engaged in sight reading exercises.

My Project

Several students have expressed their interest in the piano class. Due to the limited amount of space and resources, there is a limited amount of students that can take the class. Although there is a limited amount of space and resources, the piano lab system and books will provide individualized feedback and facilitated instruction without distracting other students.

The headphones within the piano lab system gives students the opportunity to practice on their own, ask questions, and receive feedback without distracting the entire class.

As they progress, the students will be able to become more independent in practice to build their own musicianship.
