Cooperative learning methods for group piano: The development of a teaching guide
by Meulink, Judie N., D.A., Ball State University, 2011, 171; 3490132
Abstract (Summary)

This inquiry explored cooperative learning theory and methodology in the context of teaching functional keyboard skills in undergraduate collegiate group piano classes. The purpose was to create a teaching guide to be used in the teaching and learning of harmonization, transposition, improvisation, sight-reading, accompanying, playing by ear, and technique. The guide was created using established cooperative learning methods and was intended to be used in conjunction with other resources common to collegiate group piano classes. The majority of cooperative learning material pertains to non-music subjects; of those resources that relate to music, there are almost no available published sources that incorporate cooperative learning into the group piano curriculum. Teachers of collegiate group piano classes may wish to use this guide to introduce cooperative learning methodology in their teaching situations.
