Collegiate Pedagogy Symposium
Christopher Madden, Hoving Fellow and DMA Candidate in Piano Performance and Pedagogy (PA) and Cindy Graeler, MM Candidate in Piano Performance and Pedagogy (MO) were selected to present sessions at the MTNA Collegiate Chapters Symposium at USC-Columbia in January, 2016.
Chris’s topic was “A Study of Course Performance Attributions in Undergraduate Group Piano Students.” In his session he used data from a survey of 84 undergraduate group piano students at the University of Oklahoma. The session explored the causes that students cite as contributing to their success or failure in piano.
Cindy’s presentation was titled “Career-Based Projects In The Group Piano Classroom.” She explored concrete methods that collegiate group and private piano teachers can use to foster an understanding in their students of how the piano will be relevant after graduation.
Congratulations to our outstanding OU graduate students!
