PTC 2016-17

The PTC UK Class of 2016-17 was 31 strong. Here are some photos and their comments…

 

“A fabulous organisation. I have learned so much and enjoyed making connections with others”…

“It was a unique course for me. It helped me to teach my students with new ideas”… 

 

“There have been so many new and unexpected insights about psychology, improvisation and musical interpretation. The course has definitely been a life-enhancing experience, in many ways. The idea of counter-transference, for instance, is so useful in personal interactions in every sphere of life and therefore a wonderful thing to be aware of”…

 

MUSIC & MOVEMENT – DANCE SESSION

“I have loved doing The PTC this year. Thank you so much for all the hard work planning such a stimulating, useful and enjoyable course, which has made me feel so much better prepared to teach the piano. With everything I have learnt, I will now be able to approach my teaching and playing with so much more confidence and satisfaction”…

“Brilliant course. I have a million things that I’ve taken from the course & use almost on a daily basis”…

 

“All the tutors are inspiring, helpful, supportive & exceptionally talented”…

 

“Although it has been a lot more work than I anticipated, the course has been thoroughly enjoyable and I have learnt an incredible amount about myself, piano and music generally. I’ve also made some great friendships along the way and am now equipped with so many ideas on how to further develop myself professionally in the future”… 

 

“I am so glad I didn’t postpone the completion of The PTC till next year! I feel that all the tutors demonstrated the personal approach and positive attitude that you have been teaching us to show in our own lessons, along with a high level of professionalism. The structure of learning and communication of expectations have also been helpful, clear and efficient”… 

 

“The most insightful learning at one’s own level”…

“Love the musical moments – very inspiring!”

“This course has vastly changed and encouraged me as a teacher. It has given me permission to teach in each pupil’s best interests, rather than pressured by other approaches.
I learned particularly to plan better, to have goals to work towards and especially to reflect both in and after lessons”…

 

“Thank you for helping me progress on my individual music and teaching journeys!! Such a supportive environment”.

 

“I learned much more than I expected. It has changed my perception and understanding as a pianist and a teacher. Thank you!”

 

“Thanks for all of the amazing hard work organising The PTC – the Handbooks are a work of art and such a useful resource for the future.  I have enjoyed every minute of the course days, the food was yummy and everything was very well structured and organised”…
