I am honored to receive the news that I am one of this year’s recipients of the Music Teachers National Association Teacher Enrichment Grants.
The purpose of these grants are to provide assistance to music teachers for private study, specific college-level course work or other projects that will enhance the performing and teaching skills of the applicant. Teacher Enrichment Grants support Pillar Two of the MTNA mission: “Sustain the Profession,” by supporting programs/activities designed to “ensure the long-term future of the profession.”
I am so excited and grateful to be using these funds for the Gordon Institute for Music Learning Professional Development Level Course in Piano II. I completed Piano I in the summer of 2018 and I am so pumped about Level II in August.
I am grateful for a professional organization like MTNA and also to my state affiliate, Louisiana Music Teachers Association for the many years of support as I navigate the piano teaching world as best I can.
