I was recently interviewed on the influential Creative Piano Teacherpodcast with Tim Topham. Tim’s a wonderful educator who has a very active blog, podcast, and a membership site. If you’re a teacher and never heard of him, you’re in for a treat.
In the interview, I discuss
How and why I decided to create a method book
How color is used in the method
Why the Musicolor Method starts with vertical notation
How it avoids position or finger number based thinking
My 7 core principles of music teaching
Which type of student this method is particularly suited to
I also talk about a special offer on our newly updated Musicolor Masterclass
