CHERYL RYTTING, NCTM - Mindset Matters

Piano Gallery in Riverdale

Through recognizing our own mindset as teachers and coming to understand the mindsets of our students, we can help our students discover new and effective ways to improve and experience success in their musical growth. In this presentation we will be exploring “Mindset.” What is it? How does it help us or hold us back? Can we change it? And how can we apply what we learn about mindset to our teaching?

BRENDA BAKER and LINDA BURBANK - The Artist in our Students

Piano Gallery in Riverdale

Bringing out the “Artist” in our students by incorporating a Study of Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition.

In 1873, Mussorgsky’s good friend, Victor Hartmann (a Russian artist and architect), died suddenly at age 39. In Hartmann’s honor, his friends compiled over 400 pieces of his art in an exhibition. Mussorgsky visited the exhibition and was inspired to honor his friend through music, too.

Each painting had its own distinctive mood and feeling and Mussorgsky created his music from seeing those paintings. Mussorgsky interpreted the brush strokes in the paintings as notes to be combined into musical composition. He named the piece “Pictures of an Exhibition—A Remembrance of Victor Hartmann.”

We will be sharing how to help your students develop an artistic palette through a nine-month study (one group lesson per month for nine months) of Mussorgsky’s work. Handouts included.
