Practice Pie


Do you wish practice felt as easy as pie for parents in your studio?

Supporting a child’s music studies is never going to be as straightforward as zapping something in a microwave. But Practice Pie breaks it down into a simple step-by-step recipe so that every parent can be a great music parent.

Book Description

Music practice arguments in families are seemingly so ubiquitous that it’s become a trope used in sitcoms. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Your child can have a wonderful experience with music and you can enjoy watching their progress without practice becoming a battlefield.

In Practice Pie, I’ll teach you how to support your child in their musical journey. I can’t promise it will be as easy as pie (but then, is pie really easy?) but I can promise to make it quick and practical, with a little humour thrown in for good measure.

You signed your child up for lessons because you wanted them to enjoy and appreciate music. You deserve a taste of that fun, too. Let’s get baking so we can take a bite of some delicious music practice pie!
