Making a Dynamic Difference!
What can Problem-Solving Do For You?

Jane K. Reed is an internationally known Suzuki Piano Teacher Trainer, Piano Educator and Motivational Speaker from Greenville, S.C. After earning a degree in piano performance from the University of Findley, she found her calling in Piano Pedagogy. As she teaches throughout the US and other countries, she dedicates herself to promoting finer education for students, teachers, and parents through deeper thinking, validated learning skills, and building meaningful relationships between the child, parent and teacher. This presentation will center on ways to teach our students problem solving skills in relation to playing the piano, practicing and life.

She and her husband founded Solutionary Insights, an educational business dedicated to Nurturing Thinking Minds. The unique signature of this business is the intertwining of the respect for the value of individuals, the belief that all are capable of excellence, and the resolve that fine and purposeful teaching and parenting develops outstanding abilities.
