Neurodoversity is the key to building a pedagogy that truly embraces the idea that any child can learn to play music. I have spent so much time watching people dumb down the joy of music, frustrating the student. We have to step outside the traditions of music instruction, and bend the rules.
Presuming competence is at the heart of Enlightened Audio. I believe every student is capable of learning music, and so I teach, and re-teach, break rules, and turn ideas upside down until the student makes progress. It is hard work, for both the student and me, but it is wildly rewarding. Watching students grasp a concept gives me unending joy.
I can’t personally visit every student in the world. So, I thought about making my ideas more accessible to more people by using the internet to teach.
