How is this course different than other music classes?

Most music classes are goal-oriented such as getting your kid to learn piano. This might give a sense of accomplishment at first but this success or failure environment can be stressful for kids. Also, while learning to play an instrument is fun, I place a higher value on skills like understanding rhythm, improvisation vs structure, and the freedom to create without judgment. If a child grows up desiring to learn an instrument, a dance, or just be comfortable at the local club, these are the skills they need. Also, coming from a Respectful Parenting background, this course includes specific ways parents can inspire growth instead of forcing it.


“I started the course today and am blown away! Really truly enjoying it. It's been thought provoking and has given me some inspiration for lessons with Huxley, my other kiddos, and also my older student who is wanting to learn how to "clap on time". -Loved your description of the "survival brain" constantly feeling the need to correct and fix things. -A quote of yours I also liked was, "Kids will absorb information as fast as they're ready to". My adhd brain smiled because so much of my childhood was spent reckoning with the pace of the world vs. my own cognitive tempo. Lots of adults take it personally that kids aren't absorbing what they teach and I appreciated that phrase. -Lastly, your story about how Huxley found the confidence to join the music via pretending to be in a band contextualized SO much! I'm having a blast with this ... very into this approach of gentle and improvisatory teaching. ”
