    So delightful to watch and to enjoy your presentation. When music comes from your deepest soul, the creativity shines by itself.

    Thank you so much! This discussion was very helpful in understanding the activities of the left and right brain in music playing and creation. Very inspiring and encouraging!

    Thank you for the presentation of Music Making

    I am currently teaching an adult student who has been using the Adult Method, Book 2 in Lessons and the Popular issue. He is ready for a level 3 in both categories which you have not created. He is at this point not interested in “classical” music. have you considered writing Level 3?

    I use your regular Student Level Lesson, Theory, etc. for my students – I have from the the beginning of your introduction of your Lesson series. Thank you for such wonderful pieces and teaching of the elements of music.

    I love listening to you and gathering your useful information . The Beethoven series was wonderful, however I only viewed the first three and now can’t get the 4th,5th and 6th. Please help me. Thank you.

      Are you able to access from faber piano.com? That hosts our Technique & Artistry Online site. In the lower right there are two Beethoven webinar series. The Beethoven in Isolation series should link to all six sessions. Send an email if any trouble.

    I’m new to the piano/keyboard as an adult and really appreciate your mindfulness toward students and teachers and the musical possibilities! Thank you! I enjoyed the interdisciplinary approach with your input on the brain. The Beethoven piece is brilliant! The imagery, narrative, curiosity portals, and music is laid out in a way that appears very user friendly. I love it!
