Learning Goals

Isn’t it curious (and so very unfortunate) that we all go to school for years and years without ever learning how our brain, the very organ that we are trying to change in the process, works? It is no wonder that piano lessons (and education in general) are often synonymous with drudgery and frustration.

Here you are going to learn how your brain works… in simple, practical terms.  As either student or teacher, it is critically important that you fully understand the straightforward, empowering concepts presented in the links below.  In doing so, you will learn how to make the most of your amazing brain and enjoy a lifetime of fun and efficient learning.

Please follow the links in the order shown and enjoy!
