Creative teaching is obviously something I’m extremely passionate about. I love teaching creative skills to my own students and helping teachers to do the same.
Because of this reputation, piano teachers often come to me with their creative teaching questions. And the same ones come up again and again.
So in today’s show, I’m answering your top questions about creative teaching. How can you get started if you were classically trained? Do you need an iPad to teach creatively? How can you find time in your busy piano lessons for these activities?
Find out all this and more in the episode 74.
