Find out what results this teacher discovered when she set aside standard method book options and started students with a no-books beginner approach instead, in this favourite show from our archives.
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 quite traditional music education and was highly motivated to add creativity into her lessons. She joined TopMusic Pro, started teaching beginners with the No Book Beginners framework and it’s opened up a whole new world.
Georgina has really taken my ideas, run with them and made them her own. I’m so excited to share her story with you in this episode.
