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.
