TEACHING ARTIST CERTIFICATE PROGRAM (TAP) 2017
Gitameit Institute in an MOU partnership with University of Washington School of Music started a Teaching Artist Certificate Program of study for one year. The first class will graduate in May, 2018. The next cycle will resume in 2019.
UW and Gitameit are designing this program for adult musicians as they build their instrumental skills to absorb also all-around goals of creative thinking and listening, relating music to other arts, research on the internet, learning about non-western music, taking on independent projects that encourage both entrepreneurial practice and proactive initiatives in starting a performing/teaching career and building audiences.
MUSIC LESSONS: ALL LEVELS
Gitameit Music Institute believes that musicians of any level can bring both
the art and the heart of music into their daily lives with the help of our dedicated
teachers and performers. Our faculty makes an effort to understand each student, their musical preferences and individual ways of learning. Workshops by visiting international artist/teachers constantly help us to improve both our teaching and playing practice. A schedule of private lessons, studio classes and recitals are expected ( but not mandatory) of enrolled students.
In the teaching of Myanmar music, both private and class lessons can be arranged. Gitameit partners with notable teachers from School of Fine Arts (Pantaya Kyaung) and elsewhere to assist in student placement.
In 2018, Gitameit Music Institute piano faculty is preparing to teach grades 1 – 8 of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music in partnership with Yamaha Music Myanmar.
Students and parents who would like their children to take the practical (performing) exam, still must travel to Bangkok to play for the examiner. Please inquire for more information
