Ramblings of a Music Teacher


35 Years of Teaching Experience Condensed into 

One Gem of a Book

Ramblings of a Music Teacher

This book is the result of over 35 years of teaching experience, from absolute beginner to diploma standard. Trained at the Royal Academy of Music, London and the owner of the successful YouTube channel MusicOnline UK, I have acquired over three decades of insights. I’ve seen  “what works and what doesn’t”, seen many repeated habits, both good and bad. Here, I pass on the benefit of such to you the reader; whether you be a student or teacher of music.

I have taught hundreds of students over a few decades, I’ve noticed common threads leading to strands of success. This gem of a book packed with “anecdotal evidence” will hopefully give students and teachers alike some guidance in their own music journey.
