  1. This question is mainly for members with a degree or at least some study in the field of piano pedagogy. I'm very interested in going for a double major in Music Theory and Piano Pedagogy. I've always had a deep love for music. My question and probably my problem is that I started taking piano lessons when I was 17 and was only able to afford to take them for a month. In that month I learned the Fur Elise and the Moonlight Sonata (full versions not watered down). Since that time I've taught myself a lot of other music but I have to learn 1 to 2 measures at a time, memorize, then rinse and repeat. I cannot sight read, no matter what definition you use. I can pick up a piece of music and tell quickly what every note is. Finally to my question, am I advanced enough to start a major in Piano Pedagogy and if not what skills do I need to improve on and what goals should I set before I try? Thank you in advance for any replies.
