What teachers are saying....

I have watched about half of the videos and printed the handouts and can tell everyone that a LOT of work has gone into this. If you are getting your repertoire lists ready for the fall and wanting a good sampling of classical pieces, this is the place to go. It is complete with an extensive list divided by levels and Elizabeth plays a sampling of most of them. The handouts include a musical example also. – Lizbeth Atkinson, Ohio

"I have enjoyed and benefited from the videos so much. I enter my students in our state program each year. Our state has 12 levels similar to Jane Magrath but 12!!! It has really been hard for me since my college back in the 70's did not have a good pedagogy class. Thanks for your consideration..." – Betty Lawson, Oregon

“Learning to “level” music is always a challenge and the information was very clear and helpful." – Joy Timmons, Texas

Your sessions were so very informative, and I look forward to putting the knowledge to work this year. FINALLY I've started getting excited about teaching again. And u helped! Thank you, Lord. – Jan Forester, Texas
