MTNA Conference Nashville 2020

On 2/15 I had the honor of speaking at the MTNA Conference Nashville 2020. I met so many great people! I didn’t want to pass up the opportunity to learn from these fine teachers.

I asked them to share two or three of their favorite “go-to” teaching resources so that I could share them at Paloma Piano.
