What is Differentiated Instruction? What are Pathways?

Tune in to this conversation about how and why I started to use Differentiated Instruction Strategies in my studio. Amie Webster is an amazing colleague and we share many similar perspectives about adaptive learning.

What Will I Learn?

"Melissa has a wealth of information packed into this course to help you think beyond the standard and explore other ways of teaching! I know it can be so hard to try and provide a well rounded musical education, and I appreciate how Melissa encourages ways of being well rounded yet focus on the student's ambitions!"
Sarah E
Piano Teacher, Texas
“Melissa is an amazing educator. She created a beautifully crafted system called lesson pathways that was so effective and exciting to learn about. I highly recommend Melissa as a teacher and educator.”
Kayla P.
Piano Composer, Performer, Teacher in Wisconsin
"Essential piano pedagogy for a contemporary context. The Music Lesson Pathways course has been a deeply enriching experience. Through the applications of the course content, I have learned about each of my student's goals, their unique insights, and honest self-reflections. I have been able to validate their feelings and forged productive relationships with parents. The piano pathways - along with tips and suggested resources - are rich and varied. And the best part is that we can still address the essential content and skills that we are currently teaching. This course is a must for anyone teaching piano in a contemporary context."
Felicity Breen
Piano Teacher, Australia
