I've been teaching keyboard players how to be their best for 28 years, but I've also been an active learner for longer. Whatever issues you are going through, I've been there and I got through it. I spent years trying to figure out how to play blues piano. I had some background, I knew all the chords, I knew some theory - but try as I might, I couldn’t get to the next level. I wasted many nights scouring the internet, sometimes spending three or four hours just to get one little scrap of information that would help me get better. If I had to watch one more youtuber teaching me the blues scale, I thought I’d go crazy. Does this sound familiar to you?
After analyzing my interactions with many students I began to realize that most piano/keyboard teachers were teaching theory, fingering, and reading music but they WERE NOT teaching students what kind of THINKING (mindset) they needed to succeed. I began applying these development techniques to my own learning and then that of my students.
An incredible thing happened. After the mindset training, I needed to do very little encouraging to get students to practice, and they began growing at a tremendous rate (the students who learned and applied these, anyway.) Many of the students who DID NOT apply the mindset techniques just kept trudging along at their slow pace and eventually gave up and quit, unsuccessful at their attempts.
I made it my mission to show every student what they needed in order to become the player they wanted to be, and it was so successful that I have not stopped teaching in this way since I learned it.
