"Pamela Krakauer was a participant in my seminars on Piano Pedagogy and Teaching Methodology at the University Mozarteum Salzburg from 2009 to 2015 and it was my pleasure to witness her development over the years. During this time as a student in my seminars, Pamela demonstrated plenty of empathy and musical sensibility in her teaching demonstrations with her own students. Throughout these demonstrations, Pamela played music in a cultivated way with a variety of tone colour and stylistic nuances, which led to a refinement of her students’ musical perception and in turn, motivating them to practise. At the same time, she could offer explanations and give feedback with precise clarity as to what steps had to be taken, so that a student could improve and attain an astounding level of playing in a short time. Her compassion and warmth are qualities that enable her to work with many different types of student personalities. I can only recommend with wholehearted enthusiasm, Pamela’s competency as a pianist and piano pedagogue!"
