Reviews

  • I have been using the Bag of Tricks for five years, since I was 10, and in grade 3 piano. I have now finished all the grades and I am working towards my AMusA and ATCL.
    It has changed the way I think about my practice, making it more interesting and effective, and fun. Because these tricks help me focus better, it saves time.
    The pictures are so humorous, and helped me engage when I was younger, and even now!
    The Music Journal has made me keep a track of my time. The goal setting is a good way to remind yourself where you're going, and the countdown charts help you feel the deadline!
    Would recommend this to all music teachers, and students.
