Denison Suzuki Program Provides Opportunities for Music Education
Posted: August 1, 2005
The Denison University Suzuki Program, in response to the high demand for Suzuki music instruction, has added two new instructors to its teaching staff. Cellist Heidi Corcoran and pianist Jaqcuelin McCarroll join the program in August, bringing the teacher total to nine individuals offering Suzuki instruction in piano, violin, viola and cello for students from age three to adult.
Registration for the fall semester is underway and is ongoing for as long as space is available, according to Program Director Mary Hawkins. Those interested in registering or obtaining more information about the Denison University Suzuki Program and the Suzuki method, should contact Hawkins at 740/587-5609.
Corcoran began her Suzuki cello training at the age of five in Wisconsin. She earned a bachelor's degree in music from Luther College in Iowa and recently completed a master's degree in music education, with an emphasis in Suzuki teacher training, from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. She also has completed Suzuki training at the Colorado Suzuki Institute, the Chicago Suzuki Institute and the American Suzuki Institute in Wisconsin. Corcoran, who has taught Suzuki cello for seven years, has immediate openings for new students for the fall semester (Aug. 29).
A veteran pianist and organist, McCarroll earned a bachelor's degree in music performance from Capital University -- where she also was trained in Suzuki. She also has a master's degree in higher education from Ohio University-Zanesville -- which included a thesis on "Talent Education: The Suzuki Method Applied to Music Instruction and Other Disciplines." She will have a limited number of openings for piano students in the fall semester.
