A history of group piano lessons

A very interesting article on the topic of group piano instruction: "1815, Johann Bernhard Logier (1780-1846) started teaching group piano lessons in Ireland. He quickly gained international fame, and in 1818 at least two teachers traveled from the eastern United States to take his pedagogy course.1 Prior to the Civil War, classes in piano were taught at schools for females in the South." Read the rest here.

The entire website is a worthy bookmark for piano students and lovers to visit often.
