TTTV005: Balancing the Eye and the Ear – Bradley Sowash & Leila Viss on creativity at the keyboard

tim topham piano teaching podcast

Creativity is something that is so easily forgotten in piano lessons. In the rush to get students ready for exams, competitions and performances, time spent being creative quickly becomes seen as a luxury that most teachers simply can’t afford. That’s why I was so excited to invite two pioneers of the current wave of creativity at the keys, Bradley Sowash and Leila Viss to speak with me about this important topic for all piano teachers. In this podcast, Leila and Bradley dispel many of the myths around creativity. They discuss what “creativity” actually means, how you can fit it into your lessons and what to do, step by step, to get started. They discuss why it’s so important and how creativity works in with all other aspects of piano pedagogy.
