I am continually inspired and impressed by Tim Topham's commitment to promoting excellence throughout all areas of piano pedagogy. I have discovered so many things musically through his sharing of the latest developments in technology and his sharing of ideas regarding the performance and teaching of pop repertoire. As a classically trained teacher and performer I have found this website an invaluable reference and I thoroughly recommend it to teachers around the world.

Tim Topham's exciting new teacher training videos provide piano teachers with the information and confidence they need to start teaching pop piano right away. This video series is packed with relevant and informative content presented in a thoughtful and sequential way. I am so impressed with this refreshing, exciting, and practical video series, and I can say with the utmost confidence that through this video series, piano teachers will learn everything they need to know to be highly successful at teaching pop piano in their studios, and their students will be playing their favorite pop songs in no time.

It is my belief that in order to stay relevant with our students we need to allow them to express themselves in a way that is relevant to their generation. Tim Topham provides the perfect video resource for teachers to help in this very thing. In "Teaching Pop Piano" Tim shares all the ins and outs of how to teach our students pop music. From how to get started all the way to basic arranging, Tim covers it all. Teachers will walk away from this course motivated, confident and excited to explore pop music with their students. And in turn, students will stay motivated and excited about their lessons. Five stars for this FABULOUS course! Highly recommended!
