The best forums, websites and blogs for piano teachers

Hopefully many of you are familiar the wealth of great resources for piano teachers on the web, but you’ve probably also realised that there is a lot of rubbish out there! Here is a list of my top picks on the web.

Firstly if you’re teaching in Victoria, Australia, make sure you are signed up to receive AMUSE emails by entering your email address on This will keep you in the loop with all the best PD, conferences, jobs, etc., much of which doesn’t get advertised any other way.






  • – free worldwide delivery. Fast too. Highly recommended as it’s cheaper and much faster than Amazon. Best online bookstore by far.
  • – NZ-based version of Book Depos. Both of these sites carry a fair bit of music at discount prices including method books, etc.
  •  – great resource for sheet music. They have some music available for download, the rest you can have delivered. Delivery has taken up to 2 months to get to me in the past, so be aware it’s not quick, but they do have books that no-one else has at competitive prices.


I’m sure there are other great sites out there – please leave a comment if you know of any other goodies!

    Hey guys, you should add to the list of piano learning tools. It’s pretty nice!

    Hi Tim, just FYI, the link to your Sheet Music Bookmarks doesn’t seem to be working…at least for me. It says it has a redirect loop with too many redirects…

      Hi Amy. Thanks for letting me know. I’m afraid that bookmark list is no longer available as it was too hard to keep up to date!

        Understood! Thanks for the reply!

    I would like to recommend this piano learning program
