Amie was taking classical lessons to improve her skills as a piano teacher. She came to piano teaching as a second career, and was dedicated to mastering her new profession.
But eventually, Amie realized that the lessons weren’t making her a better teacher. Instead, she was becoming an expert at something no one cares about.
Amie heard about popMATICS and decided to try it.
Suddenly, she was learning creative new ways to engage her students. She recently told us,
“Tony has done more to transform my teaching than anything else I’ve ever found. The activities are immediately applicable to my students. I now have a reputation for working with students who were about to quit lessons. I keep them at the piano.
I also love how the program works. It is exceptionally rare to find opportunities to watch someone teach in real time, with real kids and real songs, at all levels.“
If you have a classical background like Amie, maybe you aren’t comfortable with pop music, chord charts, and improvising. Especially at a level where you can teach them with confidence.
Even the best books and resources won’t transform your teaching. You need to learn these skills yourself first. Our program is designed to teach them to you.
popMATICS is a comprehensive musical curriculum based on popular music. You won’t have to change what’s already working for you in your lessons. popMATICS is the perfect supplement for any core curriculum.
Our students learn to play beautiful patterns and sounds and play along with their favorite songs from Day 1.
The four stages of our curriculum span the range from complete beginner materials to advanced functional harmony. We focus on patterns and landmarks, playing by ear, improvisation, chord charts, and custom arrangements. We also use sheet music, but it comes at end of the process, not at the beginning.
In the past, popMATICS was only accessible to teachers through private lessons with me. But the best way to learn how to teach in new ways is through direct observation. My new membership program invites you directly into my teaching space to observe and participate. And you’ll be surrounded by a community of supportive teachers with similar goals.
Our program is unique, and we want you to know it’s a good fit.
We suggest booking a free introductory session to get started. We’ll learn more about your Studio, provide you with an overview of our program, and answer any questions.
Our memberships start at $108 per month. We also offer a Studio option if you’d like some of your students to join with you.
Your first payment includes one free private lesson and a 30-day money-back guarantee.
