CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Noted learning coach Gregg Goodhart will visit the Austin Peay State University campus Sept. 22-23 for a series of events sponsored by APSU’s Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts.

Recently named “Outstanding Educator of the Year” by the American String Teacher’s Association, Goodhart’s work focuses on learning and skill-acquisition as a function of brain function and neuroscience (rather than often misleading assumptions concerning ‘talent, ‘IQ’ and ‘giftedness’). He has presented lectures at a wide range of national conferences, and he is the author of several articles featured in such publications as the American String Teachers Journal and the Journal of the Guitar Foundation of America.

During his time on campus, Goodhart will offer a public lecture, “The Art and Science of Learning Music and Anything Else,” at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 22 in the Mabry Concert Hall in the Music/Mass Communication Building. The lecture is free and open to the public.
