RPPF-Mini Mission and Purpose

 

Our objective is to help you make a successful and profitable transition

from student to pedagogue-performer.

Anyone who has a teaching/performing career will confirm that competition for employment is fierce.

RPPF-Mini is an intense seminar for those who really want a life-long career in music.

Our focus on individual career components will help you create a unique and strong skill-set in order to reach your goals.

 

 

RPPF-Mini mentors will be your coaches

 

For many years Professor Emeritus Rebecca Penneys taught Transition from Student to Teacher, an elective course at the Eastman School of Music. It was very popular as well as tremendously valuable and interesting. After years of being on the student or receiving end, graduating pianists suddenly needed to learn to give back, mentor successfully, and communicate clearly with an audience, student, or potential employer. RPPF-Mini is the continuation of that ESM course. We do not wake up one day and miraculously have a winning cover letter, refined resume, or the ability to sparkle during an interview. The expertise necessary to capture one's dream job is acquired. Fortunately, all of these skills can be learned the same way we learn to play piano: by practicing!
