"I think backing tracks are excellent to develop the sense of rhythm, proper timing for music and my kids love to play along with the backing tracks, they make them feel important, backing tracks are enjoyable challenge for them. Some of my students said “Oh I am feel I am playing with a real band, this is fun”, and they want to repeat the exercises again, even the scales they enjoy playing together with the backing tracks”. I challenge them speeding up etc. They are really great and easy to use... Thank you. "
"Students immediately pay more attention when I produce the scale backing tracks. I am using them right from the beginning of introducing scales. It helps establish a steady beat from the outset - we often just listen and tap along before even playing. It’s also easier to discuss major and minor modes while listening. Students on the exam path can use them to help drill their practice. I like how it moves evenly from hand to hand and also requires them to listen for the introduction and practice coming in on time. It requires focus and concentration."

Paul, since I watched one of your music/piano lessons with children, I have completely changed the way I teach piano. You both are an inspiration for me, and for a lot of piano teachers in the world. Thanks!
I absolutely love the teacher resource kit and all the webinars. Listening to your webinars, feeling the connection with other like-minded music teachers, and the professional learning, is the highlight of my week.
These webinars have made my teaching life during this strange time, so much more enjoyable and supportive. I have gained much from the interactions of so many amazing people. Many Thanks
"THANK YOU . I love the variety of cute characters and positive statements. I will enjoy giving them to my students."
"These flashcards look beautiful and I can't wait to use them with my students. You two are so generous with all the support, especially in the new online environment, you give teachers. It is much appreciated!"
"Thank you for your generosity in providing all these resources. It has been difficult teaching very young students online. The keyboards, manuscript and flash cards will help a great deal."
These full colour theory books gamify learning theory. Online content adds an extra dimension and works well with todays tech savvy kids. Some books video lessons which takes the pressure off you. Kids love the quizzes they can play on their smart device!
"Just wanted to say a big thank you for all you have both done to inform us about the conference over the last week.
I know this would have been considerable work for you both - but this was a very worthwhile initiative on your part."
"So many thoughts listening to this. Great improv ideas for during the lesson that get over some of the time constraints in teaching this skill and the classical repertoire. This actually reinforces the exam warhorses and more. Well done for presenting this for those of us... an inspiration."
Loved the workshop. Gave me a whole lot of ideas to work with but also let me experience why we need repetition and small chunks to learn a piece of music :)
I would absolutely recommend this workshop for piano teachers. It was so helpful to think outside the traditional teaching methods and involve all the senses whilst learning music. Applying Orff Schulwerk teaching methods to specific piano pieces was particularly helpful.
Engaging workshop full of refreshing, practical and hands on musical experience - thoroughly enjoyed it and what an instant transformation of skill and knowledge!
