Teacher Training at the New School for Music Study
Post-Graduate Fellowship 2020-2021
The Post-Graduate Fellowship at the New School for Music Study is a highly competitive program that provides intensive study in the art of effective piano teaching of all ages and levels of study. Each participant’s teaching is transformed through an in-depth practicum and immersion as a faculty member. Participants are personally mentored in piano teaching and learning of pre-college and adult students. A legacy program of the Center, the Post-Graduate Fellowship has its foundation in the philosophy of legendary teachers Frances Clark and Louise Goss.
A monthly stipend is provided.
Candidates must demonstrate an accomplished academic background in piano and or piano pedagogy. They are expected to be active performers and hold a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree. Candidates will have significant teaching experience at the pre-college level. Pedagogy study is an asset. Successful candidates may expect 15 hours of applied teaching per week, and also participate in coursework, mentored teaching, guided observations, residency program, and performance opportunities by invitation.
