Welcome to the Colourful Keys blog, it’s great to see you here!
I love sharing piano teaching ideas, resources, & tips with other teachers who are passionate about teaching the creative way. I want to help you to inspire more students to become lifelong pianists – and hopefully inspire you along the way too.
I’ve been doing this for a little while now (since 2013!), and I want to make sure you find what you’re looking for amid all these articles and episodes.
To help you on your way, we have organised themed Hub Pages on each of our most popular topics. Just click on the image to dive deeper into any topic that interests you. 🙂
