In 2000, the National Group Piano and Piano Pedagogy (GP3) Forum launched its first meeting at CCM as a grassroots forum with an emphasis on the practical aspects of teaching. Over a decade later, GP3 comes home to CCM Village this summer.
The forum provides an excellent opportunity for CCM alumni to reunite and share their experiences post-graduation!
Co-sponsored by the Musical Teachers National Association (MTNA), this year’s forum, “Beyond the Degree: Real World Teaching,” runs August 1 and 2 at CCM.
GP3’s long history began over 10 years ago in Norman, Oklahoma, when several pedagogues including Barbara Fast, Laura Williamson, Andrew Hisey and CCM Professor of Piano Michelle Conda lamented the loss of the National Group Piano Conference and wanted to offer an alternative. Out of this gathering of voices, GP3 was created.
