Special Courses and Activities are available to stimulate and encourage creative playing. Students are provided seed ideas to stimulate composition and improvisation. When the student submits a video of their playing, Teaching Artists respond with developmental comments and ideas.
A special section is dedicated to receive repertoire videos. These repertoire pieces are reviewed by three of our Teaching Artists, providing comments and suggestions for developing the piece.
Monthly Online events are scheduled over Zoom, bringing students, teachers, and Teaching Artists together in live forums.
