Developing Musical Skill - Michael Griffin
Acclaimed author Michael Griffin has kindly made his online training course about musical learning available, free of charge to Hampshire teachers and parents until the end of June.
The course challenges the common belief that musical skill is inherited through our genes, rather than developed or nurtured. It challenges students to think smarter and gives guidance on all those important facts about regular practice, including smart repetition, slow practice and chunking.
'Only practise on the days that you eat!'
Details of the course are below. There are nine videos and worksheets in the link. It does take a little work to navigate through this, but it's well worth the effort. You can also dip in and out at your own leisure.
