 Bill Henry 

Mr Henry's Music World,

Elementary Music Teacher, YouTuber and Podcaster.

As a teacher and solopreneur with an online business, it can be easy to lose sight of the important aspects that truly grow the business. Having Tim as a coach gave me the ability to keep important projects moving forward which definitely achieved short-term goals faster and resulted in "steering the ship" in the right direction for the long term. I was able to talk with Tim (like I knew others would not understand) and learn specific techniques in marketing that were tailored to my situation. His advice and knowledge helped grow the business from month to month; giving me the confidence to continue and progress to help make a further impact on my business and mission.

What can I work on during this coaching?

  • The focus is all on YOU and your goals. Here are the possibilities:
  • Teaching help - choosing repertoire, assess your teaching, lesson ideas and guidance
  • Have me take lessons for some of your students so you can see the creative process in action (timezone and times permitting)
  • Take private lessons from me - see YouTube for my own live streamed lessons this year!
  • Get business-level help in your studio
  • Systemising and automation (I love this stuff!)
  • Launching sheet music, courses and products onto the market
  • Hiring team members, VAs, admin help, teachers
  • Learn how to create A-level in-person or online events
  • You name it, we will work on it. If there is something I don't know the answer to immediately, I'll find it out or connect you with someone who can.

My student Ilya quickly felt at ease with Tim, who brought his trademark enthusiasm and warmth to the online coaching lesson. Praising Ilya’s strengths, Tim found a great balance between building on known skills and encouraging him in lots of on-the-spot improvising that blossomed from the repertoire piece Ilya performed. Ilya, who is in Year 6 at school, enjoyed working with “a famous YouTuber”, and even though we are eight hours away from Melbourne we felt like Tim was right here due to his natural communication. When looking for a way to inspire a tween or teen to enjoy piano, I would strongly recommend teachers learning from Tim, whether through the resources in membership at Top Music Pro or through one-on-one coaching. From my perspective as a grey-haired teacher with decades of experience, I have renewed energy and creativity because of Top Music Pro, and was humbled by the opportunity for my student to experience this for himself through his lesson with Tim.

Got questions about joining Tim's A-list? 

What if I'm already a TopMusicPro member?

If you already have a monthly Lite, Studio or Evolution membership, we'll hit pause on your payments while you're on the A-list. If you have an annual membership, we'll extend your membership by the number of months you remain on the A-list. 


How much time should I commit each week?

Very sensible question!

To make the most out of the program, I recommend setting aside at least 1-2 hours per week in order to watch recommended training, participate in group and private calls, explore community posts, ask questions and, of course, to take action.

If your goal is to work on your own performance and playing during the coaching, then setting aside some additional practice time will be beneficial. 


What's the minimum commitment?

While you'll get more out of the program the longer you stay involved, the minimum commitment is 3 months.


What times are the meetings?

Participants will choose a time to suit them that works on Tim's calendar for their 1-on-1 coaching sessions in weeks 1 and 3 of each month.

The monthly group QnA sessions will be held in Week 2 of each month at a time that best suits the participants. This will be discussed when the applications are finalised. 

If a month has 5 weeks, there will be a break for the extra week :)


Do I have to be a TopMusicPro member to join?

No. Anyone can join this program whether they're already a TopMusicPro member or not, but as a part of being on the A-list, you'll automatically get access to our top level Evolution membership valued at $799 per year.


Is this really coaching with Tim?

Sure is! Tim Topham will be your personal guide and mentor while you're on his A-list. Previously this level of personalised coaching has only been offered privately for a select few people and at a much higher price point. He's never offered this program before and is not promising to open it up again. Please note that Evolution Masterminds are run by both Tim and other expert teachers. Power Hour co-working sessions are run across 3 different timezones. Tim regularly attends the Australian session, but not all sessions.
