Workshop: World Piano Teaching

How do great teachers teach? Does my teaching equip students to handle high-level training? This seminar provides a context of piano education gained through thousands of hours of travel, master classes, study, and experience with pianists and piano pedagogues who teach at famous conservatories, summer academies, and judge international competitions. Of interest will be the context provided by knowing how teachers of renown help their students develop into performing artists and professors of high-level musical acuity. Active Q&A will be part of the workshop, which will be followed by a master class for advanced students.

Piano Master Class 3- 5 pm: Open to both students and teachers to participate.

Concert Repertoire Only (Level 9 and up)

Critics describe Jarred Dunn’s as “a virtuoso with the most exquisite touch” (Freethought Today, Madison), “his amazing sense of style, elegance and noble - but not excessive - sensitivity, passion…beautiful piano and powerful forte, melodious - but not sugary - cantilena, broad phrasing and very rich, nuanced range of sounds” (Atheist Review, Warsaw), “technically perfect performance…perfect ensemble with the orchestra” (Belarus First Radio, Minsk) and “subtle, refined sound, and an impeccable technique...a piano sound colour magician” (Muzikos Barai, Vilnius). Mr. Dunn has been featured on CBC Radio, Freethought TV/Radio in Madison, Belarus First Radio, and WQXR New York. His interest in a multitude of teaching philosophies has taken him around the world, to pedagogy, chamber music, concerto, and piano master classes in Europe, Canada, and the United States, with more than seventy eminent pianists and pedagogues. He has interviewed and published articles about great pedagogues and musicians in the Canadian Music Educators’ Journal. He performs as a recitalist, chamber musician, and soloist with orchestras, most recently including the Torun, Budapest Chamber, Vilnius Chamber, Niagara, and York Philharmonics, and recorded his first album, Chopin and Debussy, in 2018, after winning First Prize and Concerto Award at the Lithuanian Chopin Competition in Vilnius. He was also a prizewinner (and the only Canadian) in the 1st Jan Hoffman International Competition in Krakow. He lectures and gives master classes regularly, and his teaching is featured on Tonebase Piano. His major teachers include Stéphane Lemelin, Jacob Lateiner, Yoheved Kaplinsky, Dorothy Taubman, Anna Górecka and Katarzyna Popowa-Zydroń. For more information, visit www.jarredunn.com.
