Robert Pace Receives Achievement Award. (Association News)


Robert Pace, composer, concert pianist, lecturer and music educator, was honored with the 2003 Music Teachers National Association Achievement Award at the Awards Brunch March 19, during the MTNA National Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah. MTNA Immediate Past President Joan M. Reist, NCTM, presented the award.

"Robert Pace has had a monumental, far-reaching and lasting impact on the world of music teaching; he has developed materials and programs of study that have influenced--and inspired--teachers throughout the United States, Europe and Asia," said MTNA Immediate Past President Joan M. Reist, NCTM. "Countless students of all ages have been happy beneficiaries of his efforts to encourage creative and comprehensive piano lessons; he is truly deserving of MTNA's highest award."

Pace, of New York City, brought new concepts to piano pedagogy. His desire to enable all students to achieve their musical potential by becoming musically literate and independent had a major impact on keyboard pedagogy, being the subject of numerous radio and television programs. His piano instruction books have been translated into seven languages. Although he is officially professor emeritus at Teachers College, Columbia University, he continues in an advisory capacity with doctoral students and to offer special courses in keyboard pedagogy.

Born in Kansas, Pace began his formal piano studies at age 6.
