Forum Series: Launching My ‘SMART' Piano Studio!

  • Steven Baxter Recital Studio YST Conservatory Singapore, 117376 Singapore (map)


YST Head of Keyboard Studies Professor Thomas Hecht introduces his newly-developed approach to pedagogy which embraces technology usually found in the academic classroom. Professor Hecht will demonstrate how his teaching philosophies, which have now been streamlined into various “applications” and “menus”, can reinforce important aspects of teaching delivery through the use of projected displays in lessons. 



Renowned American pianist and pedagogue Thomas Hecht is the founding Head of Keyboard Studies at the YST Conservatory in Singapore. Over the span of three decades he has concertised on five continents as concerto soloist, recitalist, chamber musician. Professor Hecht also enjoys a well-deserved reputation as one of the leading teachers of his generation, having produced a multitude of first prizewinners in solo and two piano competitions throughout the United States, Europe and Australasia.
