Attract More Students
With ready made resources, teaching guides and Practice Buddy at your finger tips you'll be able to branch out and feel excited about taking students you may have passed on before, like young children or students with learning difficulties. Watch how many new students also find their way to your door as happy parents tell their friends!
Young Children (4 - 7 yr olds)
If you've been waiting until they turn 8 yrs old before you start students off, you've been missing out on providing these perfect aged students with music and missing out on the income that goes with it.
Sure, young children can't sit still long. They're not built that way! Young children just need to move to learn. With our Teaching Success Guides you'll have everything you need to hold the attention span of little ones.
Students with learning challenges
Do you find it a challenge teaching students with learning delays or difficulties, especially dyslexia? A read-play approach just doesn't suit all learners. Even students who don't have a learning difficulty can struggle with a traditional read-play approach. All students respond beautifully to Whole Body Learning. Just because they can't read doesn't mean they can't learn to play piano and play well.
Attract more referral Students
Most parents just want their child to enjoy their music, feel like they are progressing, and hope one day as an adult they will be able to sit down and just play for their own enjoyment.
They may be concerned that piano lessons will be a bit of a chore but hope for something better. Here's your opportunity to amaze parents with your creative, brain-friendly teaching activities designed for today's child and delight parents with Practice Buddy.
Not only will Practice Buddy make home practice more productive, it's a real parent pleaser too as it sounds good!
Delight your students' parents and they will openly recommend you to their friends.
Keep More Students
Engage and motivate all of your students with ease...
Get off the motivation treadmill! Take the stress off by encompassing multiple senses in the learning process (Whole Body Learning) and watch your student progress with ease. Progress is addictive - good addictive!
Students who progress STAY! Heck, sometimes you'll be having so much fun it won't even seem like a piano lesson!
Keep Busy Kids progressing
So many students are busy these days with limited time to practice and while it may seem counter-intuitive, students can progress on less practice. Time-based practice isn't everything. In fact, research shows that most kids waste a lot of time doing things they know rather than the things they don't - sound familiar?
By introducing concepts, pieces and scales through brain-friendly Whole Body Learning activities outlined in our Teaching Success Guides, you'll find even the busiest child can progress on less practice.
Add to that, having Practice Buddy at home to make what practice time they do have more productive, you'll find your students will progress and enjoy their lessons - and so will you!
Keep your online students engaged
One of the hardest things about online teaching is that your students aren't right there beside you where you can lean over and make easy adjustments in a jif. It can be demanding trying to modify your approach for online teaching. It's exhausting having to explain every single thing!
What if you had a brain-friendly multi-sensory approach that works as well online as it does face to face, which means you can pivot at a moment's notice. And an approach that adds variety to your online lesson that provides deep learning experiences for your students and is light on your voice.
Teach More Students
Earn More by Teaching Small Groups!
Earn more in lesson time without compromising on quality by teaching groups following the teaching process outlined in our Teaching Success Guides. It's perfect for groups. In fact, this is the approach our Forte teachers have been using with their groups for more than 25 years!

5 Top Practice Problems you wont need to worry about any more when you join 'The Studio'
1. Don't Practice enough
What if your students learnt through brain-friendly strategies which meant they didn't need to spend as much time practicing?
Don't worry about spending hours trying to come up with some great ideas. Just use our Piano Teaching Success Guides for your favourite pieces complete with ready made resources, and backing tracks to get your students thriving on less practice!
2. Practice in mistakes
Feel distraught when a student has spent all week practising in mistakes? It takes so much time to undo! When we reduce the amount of new learning by teaching fragments, put those fragments into context by using backing tracks and teaching in a multi-sensory way we make it easy for brains to remember the details.
Don't worry, we've taken the hard work out of making you look good with our Piano Teaching Success Guides for a whole range of pieces for beginners through to early advanced, for scales, chords and sight reading. Reclaim your weekends by letting us do your prep work!
3. Find practice tedious and boring (focus on time spent rather than outcomes achieved)
What if you could gamify home practice and make it fun? Playing with Practice Buddy backing tracks is fun! Our brains find it novel to work out how to come in and stay in time with the music. The tracks make us sound great, thereby impressing our family and friends which feeds our dopamine loop and makes practice FUN!
Feel the excitement lift when you bring out a new piece with a great sounding backing track rather than having to bring out your super salesman skills just to get them mildly motivated. Never stress again at not having something interesting to give your students. You'll have hundreds of backing tracks at your finger tips.
4. Struggle to keep a steady beat when you're not there to keep it for them!
What if your students practiced with the most musical metronome you'll ever find and didn’t know it! When students play at home with Practice Buddy, teachers find that mistakes are minimised and musicality as well as musicianship are increased.
Practice Buddy does the heavy lifting for you. You'll be amazed at how well your students pick up rhythm and beat and a whole host of other musical skills. The key is having Practice Buddy to play along with at home and, as a member, all of your students have access to Practice Buddy!
5. Forgot how the piece goes so I couldn't practice it.
Do your students struggle to remember how a piece should sound when they get home? What if they had a Practice Buddy to play along with at home to remind them.
Supercharge practice time for your students with Practice Buddy at home. Yes that's right, as a member, all of your students have home access to hundreds of pieces, scales, sight reading and chord playing all with great sounding backing tracks through Practice Buddy.
