Teaching Advanced Students


by Nancy Ostromencki and John M. Zeigler, Ph.D.

dvanced students present the teacher with both an opportunity and a dilemma. While such students can be tremendously satisfying and fun to teach, they may also force the teacher to examine carefully their own knowledge and skills as pianists in order to do what is best for the student. Sometimes, the best thing a teacher can do is to help the student find another teacher who specializes in teaching advanced students. In this article, we'll discuss some of the considerations for teachers who have or may soon have advanced students. We won't give any prescriptions here, but we hope this article will help teachers in the decision-making process.
