About the No Book Beginner Framework

Do you want your students to:

  • be immersed in creative music-making right from the first lesson
  • feel challenged to freely explore music and be curious about how it works
  • be able to transpose tunes, and hear and understand harmony
  • listen, sing and pitch-match right from the beginning
  • feel meter, rhythm, beat and time in their bodies

But most of all, do you want your students to be 100% engaged and having FUN with music from the very first lesson?

Then the No Book Beginner Framework is the right choice for you!

Designed for teaching beginner piano students around 7-11 years old (but can be easily adapted to older students!)

Lesson plans cover 30-45 minute lessons for teachers working 1-on-1

Can  easily be adapted to group lessons and classroom teaching

Flexible approach that lets you explore, change, remix and edit as much as you wish!

Works alongside your current teaching style, or use it as a replacement for a student

Krista McCarthy 

"I wanted to tell you about the 6 year old student I started using the No Book Beginners framework with.

It basically saved this student!

His mom was ready to drop lessons because what I was using just wasn't working for him. He just absolutely loves the lessons now and I love teaching them."

Mei Po  

"I followed this lesson plan for a new student, an 8 year old boy, and he enjoyed it so much that he was sorely disappointed to realise 45 minutes had zoomed by.

A real hit - thanks Tim!"

Kathryn M.

"Taught a first lesson to a new student yesterday and her Mom said, "Wow. How did you learn to teach piano like this? Is this how you were taught? Because it sure isn't how we were taught as kids."

 A big shout out to Tim Topham for the No-book Beginners approach!!!"
