CPTP147: How Teaching Beginners with No Books has Revolutionised Georgina’s Studio

Teaching Beginners

When I published the No Book Beginners framework I hoped it would give teachers the confidence to teach more creatively, and that’s exactly what it’s done for Georgina Jordan.

Georgina is a piano teacher in the UK who had a very traditional music education and was struggling to add creativity into her lessons. She joined the TopMusicPro, started teaching beginners with the No Book Beginners framework and it’s opened up a whole new world.
