  • Different Approaches To Piano Technique

    Philip Sharp Classical Piano Teacher (Manchester) Picture I am a firm believer in the importance of encouraging good technique from the very first lesson, however, this is always a complex issue and my approach must change from student to student. I am fascinated by the differences between adult students and younger students when it comes to solving...
  • Creating a Proper Violin Warm-Up Routine Editor's Pick

    Jill Valentine Classical Violin Teacher (South East London) Picture Motivating oneself to enter the "practice" mindset can be daunting, especially in the midst of a busy world in which we have grown used to having a thousand things on our minds at once. There's no way to avoid the fact that a practice session will only be worthwhile if we are 100 percent focused...
  • Choosing The Best Drum Kit For Beginners Editor's Pick

    Dean Valentine Drum Kit Teacher (South East London) Picture So you're thinking about taking up the drums. Perhaps you're a parent and your child wants to learn, but you don't have a drum kit. Where should you begin? In this day and age it seems as though the obvious answer would lie in the cybersphere. Everything nowadays is just a Google away. You will...
  • Effortless, Spontaneous Creativity

    Dina Rizvic Classical Piano Teacher (Harrow) Picture Think of the time when you were just a child with no fear, obligations, to do lists and things that you had to manage every day of your life as an adult or young adult.

  • Can Jazz Improvisation Be Taught? Editor's Pick

    Sean Gibbs Jazz Improvisation Teacher (North London) Picture A common question that I have encountered is the issue of whether it is possible to teach someone to improvise in the jazz idiom. Whilst the ultimate goal is to be free to play one's original ideas created in the moment, it takes a great deal of preparation to get to this point. This is where I...
  • Open Tunings Editor's Pick

    Josh Geffin Folk Guitar Teacher (East London) Picture Open tunings are a great way to explore new terrain on the guitar.

  • The Benefits Of Singing Across Generations

    Ruby Hill Classical Singing Teacher (Worcester) Picture Singing and using the voice to its full potential can benefit us in many ways. When we sing, our bodies release endorphins, which are our feel-good hormones. Also dopamine is released, a chemical linked to our biological needs, and so singing is closer related to our basic human instinct than we...
  • The Rhythm In Your Bones

    Christina Borgenstierna Drums/ Percussion Teacher (East London) Picture As I got into meditation and incorporated meditative practices into my playing, I realised that paying attention to my thoughts would inevitably lead to losing the beat, or falling out of rhythm. What a great blessing when I put two and two together, and turned drumming into a meditative...
  • Three Chords and The Truth

    Sam Bloxsidge Electric Guitar Teacher (North West London) Picture My musical journey began properly at the age of ten, when I first held a guitar in my hands and was shown three chords. A, D and E. This gave me The Trogs classic 'Wild Thing.' I practised the changes to death on a beat up old classical guitar that had steel strings on it. I felt exhilarate...
  • Do People Take Their Voice For Granted?

    Emily Lee Vocal Coaching Tutor (Birmingham) Picture The majority of us are lucky to have a voice. However, not many of us know how our voices work.

When we speak, there...
