By following my practice methods which combine scientific research and extensive teaching experience….

I can’t wait to show you how in this 3 part masterclass.

My methods are proven to work for any instrument and any musical style, but those who rely on sheet music will find them especially beneficial.

Whether you’ve been learning for years or you’ve just gotten started, practising the right way means...

You’ll achieve more in less time, meaning you’ll learn new material quicker and retain it longer.

You’ll improve your technical skills and attain proficiency at playing your instrument with better accuracy, speed and fluency.

You’ll play with more confidence, allowing your creativity and musical expression to shine through.

Many people dream of playing music well, but for some, the journey is more difficult than necessary. Even with investments in lessons, YouTube videos, and books, progress can still feel slow after hours of practice.


➡ You already practise regularly, but you still struggle to make the desired progress.

➡ You’re overloading yourself, making great progress one day, only to find that those annoying mistakes return the next session.

➡ You feel your age is against you, time is running out, and you lack musical talent.

Your ineffective practice methods are costing you progress, time and musical enjoyment!

You have to learn how to practice the right way!

It took me years to realise that improving technique requires mastering the art of practice. I learned from experience that endless repetition and lengthy practice sessions are not effective for achieving accuracy, fluency, and precision.

Through years of hard work, experience, and immersion in the latest research and techniques, I developed a methodology called Play Music Better. Now as a highly sought after adujudicator, examiner and teacher of over 25 years, I am proud to have helped countless adult learners unlock their full potential.

You can easily avoid making errors and make more rapid progress without hours and hours of work by developing the skill of effective practice.


The Play Music Better Masterclass

A masterclass for adults who are learning to play a musical instrument. It includes 3 comprehensive live sessions and covers all the essential topics you need to know to practice effectively while giving you time to absorb and practice what you’ve learned between sessions.

If you’ve got questions, I’ve Got Answers 😀

Is this masterclass right for me?

This is a right fit for any adult who is learning to play a musical instrument… and wants to speed up their learning and play music with confidence. 

A beginner who has made a start and is 100% committed to learning practice methods that set them up for success.

Intermediate players who are no strangers to practising but want to see their progress and confidence skyrocket without extending the practice hours.

At a place where progress has plateaued, and you need a way forward that reignites your enthusiasm and passion for music and gets you to the next level

Do you offer refunds?

• I share an enormous amount in the masterclass for very little money. 
• It’s extremely low-risk, and the cost is considerably lower than private tuition.
• Months and months of work have gone into this offer (actually years!) 
• I want you to stand behind your own buying decision and really absorb everything that my effective practice techniques have to offer.
