From his earliest years Neil Moore, the Founder of Simply Music and creator of the Simply Music Piano program, heard music and pictured it in his mind in terms of shapes and patterns. This relationship to music became the basis of his entire approach to learning and playing piano. As an adult and a coach to traditional piano teachers he had an opportunity to teach a young blind boy to play. Using his unique approach to music Neil taught the boy through shapes and patterns, and subsequently discovered that his ‘playing-based’ approach could transform how quickly all piano students, of all ages, could learn to play. Thus began the foundation of what has become the world’s largest playing-based music education institution.Watch the Video
Revolutionizing Piano Teaching
Redefining how music is taught and who can teach piano.
One of the critical factors behind the success of Simply Music’s Teacher Training Program is the fundamental premise that everyone, without exception, is profoundly musical. Whether we realize it or not our ability to walk and talk demonstrates a profound mastery over complex rhythmical and musical concepts – this is our natural ‘musicality’. We use this natural musicality in conjunction with our revolutionary approach to music education and have students immediately playing great-sounding music with ease at the piano.Watch the Video
The Simply Music Piano curriculum takes a very non-traditional approach to music education. In doing so it redefines who is capable of learning music. It also redefines the teaching of music. In essence, the method consists of a vast array of playing-based tools and strategies. Although these tools and strategies can be somewhat abstract to describe they are very easy to understand when seen and played. The bottom line is that this method has students of all ages playing contemporary, classical and blues piano from their very first lessons.Watch Lesson Demos
