The Best Information You Can Give Your Students…Guaranteed

What’s the fastest way to learn how to play a musical instrument?

That’s the number one question your students want you to answer.

Luckily, there’s a growing body of scientific research that answers this question. You no longer have to rely just on your own experience or your conversations with other music professionals.

This research, while it backs up much of what you’ve known for years, has a few surprises too – especially for your students! These students depend on you to give them this information in a way they can understand and easily put to use.

That’s where I come in. I’ve been focused on this topic since 1997. I’ve created books and tools for you and your students – all designed to make learning their instrument as efficient and effective as possible.

The Musician’s Practice Planner Helps Teachers Excel

Teacher Ambassador Program

The Teacher Ambassador Program was set up by Molto Music for teachers who use the Musician’s Practice Planner with the students in their teaching studios. These teachers are Ambassadors because they are spreading knowledge to a new generation of musicians who are learning:

–The most effective and efficient ways to learn to play their instruments.
–The Top Ten Practice Tips
–How to avoid the biggest and most common musician mistakes.
–How to plan and meet (or even beat) goals.
–That success and self-esteem from music translate to ALL areas of their lives.
–That by focusing on the right skills, they can accomplish anything they want.

For several years now I have been requiring my voice students to use your spiral bound Practice Planner. This has revolutionized their weekly accountability as well as helping me understand how better to assist their overall development. Using your planner has been a very positive step, and I will continue to promote its benefits to all my students.

–Knowledge of exactly what to do in between lessons – when you’re not there to guide them
–Specific, attainable goals so they always feel they’re moving forward
–Every tool available to give them the best chance for success

The Musician’s Practice Planner was designed with these goals in mind. This book will give each of your students the best lesson experience possible.
