Ever been told you’re not good enough for something you love?

At age 10, my piano teacher told me to quit and go play sports. It wasn’t surprising, given that traditional music education has always had a ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ way to play—and I kept trying to break those boundaries. While I became skilled at reading classical scores, I never had the opportunity to improvise, compose, or express myself freely on the piano. Such freedom was often reserved for ‘the talented’ or those headed to jazz conservatories. Because I was told I lacked talent, I nearly gave up on the piano altogether.

Fast-forward to today: I am a professional pianist and composer, a speaker for the European Piano Teachers Association, and an online educator. With nearly 1000 students and millions more reached through my YouTube channel, I’ve turned upside-down how music is taught. My method opens the door to improvisation, composition, and self-expression right from the start, making these essential skills accessible to students at all levels.


Just wish I had your creative guidance about ten years earlier! This system of yours is pure gold.
