BrendaDillonDurhamNorth CarolinaWith a college teaching and home studio background, I decided to develop an RMM piano program at a senior center in a Dallas, TX suburb. My career took a new and exciting turn which led to developing materials, writing articles, giving teacher training sessions and serving as an RMM clinician for state, national and international organizations. Brian Chung and I co-authored Recreational Music Making, a handbook for piano teachers, published by Alfred. This fall Hal Leonard will publish my adult piano book – Piano Fun for Adult Beginners – Recreational Music Making for Private or Group Instruction.
I served as a Project Director for the National Piano Foundation and presently serve on the advisory board to the Frances Clark Center. I am an education consultant for Roland U.S. and am a former editor of Keyboard Companion, now Clavier Companion.
