Join us as we explore ways to partner tradition with technology to inspire creativity, accelerate progress, and enhance our students’ desire to make music. Leave with new ideas for the studio, while staying up to date with the technology your students are using every day!

Laura Zaruta believes technology solutions inspire today’s students, reinforce the fundamentals, and maximize instructional time. Laura graduated with honors from Marywood University with a BM in Piano Performance. She received an MM in Piano Pedagogy from Temple University where she also worked as a vocal coach and accompanist. Laura’s workshops are influenced by her classical training and teaching experience, as they not only demonstrate technology tools, but also take into consideration curriculum, assessment, and different learning styles. She develops clinics and training sessions for private and group piano studios, as well as K-12 and higher education classrooms. WORKSHOP SEATING IS LIMITED.
