“Is it a bad idea to show my students how easy it can be to play chord progressions and songs they love? What if they decide they don’t want to read music anymore?” When I discovered this method, at first I thought I was going against everything I had ever learned when I was a piano student. But then I noticed something crazy… the more my students learned chords and popular songs, the more confident they felt. And with confidence came more practice and better results...
For less than half the price of an hour-long private music lesson, you can learn all 24 basic piano chords you'll need to play thousands of songs, with a fun and creative card game. That's $1 per chord!
Who knows, this might just be the thing that inspires you to sign back up for lessons... it's fully compatible with all piano methods, and if you're a piano teacher, you can use these tools today to supercharge your curriculum with creativity and improvisation!
I'm a creative alchemist, living my life on the line between pure creativity and a structured understanding of music.
I was trained young by a hit songwriter mom and a therapist dad. Losing my father at 12 put me on a search for the deeper meaning behind everything. This led to decades as a pilgrim seeking the holy grail of personal transformation through music, video, performance, and the written word.
Trained by life to find the signal in the noise, I serve as a catalyst for the transformations of others. I created the Magic Music Method to help my students stay engaged by focusing on creative piano patterns and chord based playing, while also keeping basic literacy and proper technique in focus.
This method is compatible with every other method, and can be used as a supplement by teachers looking to increase their creativity and improvisation tools.
