'Play leads to brain plasticity, adaptability and creativity. Nothing fires up the brain like play'*

Do your beginner lessons feel like hard work and are quite serious? The problem might be a lack of playfulness.

This Online Course features step-by-step ideas that will immediately show you how to become more playful in one-to-one and group piano lessons.

As a direct result you'll find that your students learn faster and more effectively.

"Seeing the activities being delivered gave me the confidence to try them out right away!"

- Katrina Fox, piano teacher & member of The Community

A significant feature of this course is that you get to observe Sally and Sharon teach. You get to see what a playful approach looks like. Sally and Sharon also explain the purpose of this 'playful' approach and provide lesson reflections for each lesson video.

  • 6 videos where you get to watch Sally and Sharon teaching
  • 6 Teacher Workbooks that help you to start using the same techniques in your teaching
  • A 40-page Resource Pack with the songs and colourful, ready-to-print rhythm flashcards that your pupils will love (and so will you!)

Members of The Curious Piano Teachers Community will also get complimentary access to the Let's Play online Mastermind forum, where you can chat with others doing the course (and Sally & Sharon)

The Curious Piano Teachers

We’re Sally Cathcart and Sharon Mark-Teggart, Co-Founders of The Curious Piano Teachers – and we’re delighted that you’ve found your way to us!

Like you we are both passionate about teaching the piano. Between us we have many years of experience teaching children and adults from beginners to diploma level. We place making music at the heart of all our lessons and our pupils are encouraged to explore and discover music from many different angles. As teachers we love messing around with repertoire and exploring how to present musical concepts as it keeps our teaching vibrant and colourful.

As our own teaching has developed we have been increasingly drawn into sharing our knowledge and understanding with other teachers, helping them develop a more systematic and reflective approach to piano teaching.

To that end together we founded The Curious Piano Teachers. Through our online Community we have been working with piano teachers around the world, providing them with practical ideas and resources that are helping to transform their piano lessons.

Now we want to share our ideas more widely by offering on-line, self-study courses.
