AnotationThe festival focused on instructive piano literature is a completely unique platform for connecting the teaching intentions of the Department of Keyboard Instruments with the practice performed by current students, graduates of the OU and teachers of the ZUŠ Moravian-Silesian Region. Against the background of getting acquainted with Czech piano literature for children, a series of lectures, seminars, an interpretation course and a concert will take place over two days. KKN students and teachers play a significant role in the whole project, and we also welcome experts on the issue - the interpretation seminar will be led by pianist and teacher Karel Košárek. This year's event is focused on the work and composers of Emil Hradecký and Milan Dvořák. Vlastimil Šmída will lead the improvisation workshop. According to previous experience, the project provides a unique opportunity to strengthen students' independent creative activity in the field of interpretation and pedagogy and to enrich their studies at a practical and theoretical level. In elaborating this program, we work very closely with the art disciplines of the Faculty of Arts, OU. The videos and comments contained in the processed material stored on Moodle are welcome material to supplement the teaching, both in full-time and distance form. To a large extent, they serve as the basis for many students' diploma theses and the publishing activities of teachers.
