Significant teaching opportunities (private and group) are available through the Butler Community Arts School for graduate students who are passionate about serving the greater Indianapolis community. Our graduates are thriving studio owners, owners of academies and multi-teacher organizations, successful doctoral degree candidates, and adjunct/full-time faculty.
The Piano Pedagogy program at Butler University is nationally recognized for its innovative curriculum. Pedagogy classes are designed around essential teaching topics (Organization and Materials, Psychology of Teaching, Technique, Style and Interpretation) instead of general levels or types of students. These topics are explored in-depth, with practical applications to all levels and types of students. Within each topic, students are encouraged to explore various approaches and to assimilate in their teaching the methods that most resonate with their teaching style and future career plans.
