A few researchers have demonstrated the effects of using behavioral principles during music therapy on client’s pain management and work tasks (Kenny & Faunce, 2004; Madsen & Madsen, 1968). Very few researchers have discussed or conducted research on the application of behavior principles for piano teachers. The purpose of this presentation is to articulate the application of behavior principles during a two-hour workshop demonstration at a regional piano conference for piano teachers. The following basic behavioral principles were discussed and demonstrated for a group of 33 piano teachers. The principles of behavior are; creating a task analysis, the use of chaining, reinforcement, learning trials, providing opportunities to respond, behavior specific praise, stimulus prompting, motivating operations, as well as behavioral momentum. The presentation will also include a discussion of how the behavior principle of generalization and maintenance (i.e., general case analysis, multiple exemplars etc.) can help with the preparation of a piano recital. After the completion of the workshop, the attendees were asked to complete a social validity survey to obtain information about their perception of the acceptability and usefulness of the behavioral strategies. Results will be provided for nine out of the 33 conference attendees.
