General, Piano teaching

A Piano Teacher Writes is signing off

I’m no longer teaching regularly and although I still take an active interest in the world of piano pedagogy, I don’t feel it’s appropriate to continue to update this site, the main purpose of which was to offer guidance and advice for my own students and their parents, and for other piano teachers and students.

From now on, all piano teaching related articles, including guest articles, will appear on my main site, The Cross-Eyed Pianist. Please follow or subscribe to that site for new posts.

This site will not be closed down – you can still access it and search the archive, but it won’t be updated.

Thank you to everyone who has read, commented upon and contributed to this site over the 10 years it has been in existence.
