Her students were struggling with just sitting at the piano and reading the notes. She tried Whole Body Learning initially with her lovely son and was amazed at how quickly he learnt new concepts and how focussed & motivated he was to get it right!

Qi Chen, Australia

Kids are tired after a long day at school and need a break from teachers talking all the time. Incorporating movement activities along with music playing can be a welcome relief!  Trina's online student picked things up quicker, and had better memory retention with WBL.
