"I've completely changed the way I teach"

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!

"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!"

Alison Cozadinos

"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."

We've made theory FUN with Theory Fundamentals!

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!

See the Theory Fundamentals range now at Blackrock Music!


"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."

How piano teachers have found our workshops and webinars have transformed their teaching...

"Loved that I got to experience why we need to use small chunks to learn a piece"

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 :)

Marie-Louise Bethune

"so helpful to think outside the traditional teaching methods"

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.

"what an instant transformation of skill and knowledge"

Engaging workshop full of refreshing, practical and hands on musical experience - thoroughly enjoyed it and what an instant transformation of skill and knowledge!
