22, 29 April & 6 May 2019 - Piano Pedagogy Aural Workshops For Piano Teachers | Steinway Gallery Singapore
Select Page

Piano Pedagogy Workshops organised by Steinway Gallery is designed for busy piano teachers who are looking for opportunities to refine and improve their teaching skills. This opportunity for personal development will keep teachers updated with strategies such as implementing games, apps and technology resources to train their piano students to sharpen their aural and sightreading skills. A student who listens and sightreads well, will translate into better musicianship that can help them to ace through their piano exams, competitions and festivals. 


  1. Teaching Aural (grades 6 – 8) 
  • Do you feel exasperated with students who cannot remember a 4-bar melody much less sing it back beyond the first 3 notes?
  • Are you at a loss with students who are clueless at listening to the bass line of a 2-part or 3-part melody?
  • Do you have students who randomly guess the answers to naming cadences and modulations?
  • Do you need some structure and guidelines to help your students to identify musical styles of the different periods?

If you have answered affirmatively to some of the above questions, this is the perfect workshop for you. Although aural tests form a subsidiary component of the piano exam, a student who listens well will, in turn, play well. This workshop will give you some structure at how you can approach the teaching of Aural at the higher grades.
