Musiah teaches piano lessons but students learn on a MIDI keyboard for obvious practical reasons — such as the ability to connect a keyboard to a computer.
To date, the most effective mainstream piano/keyboard teaching method has been traditional piano teaching, i.e. teaching students to read and play the notes in each hand properly. Despite some limitations, the traditional approach significantly outperforms any of the well known alternative approaches, for example those that attempt to teach students to play piano almost exclusively by ear or by using solfa-names for the notes.
While based on traditional piano-style teaching, the Musiah Piano Teaching Method uses a highly efficient combination of techniques to vastly improve the effectiveness of the traditional piano teaching method.
Research shows that students who learn piano with Musiah progress 5-8 times faster than piano students learning the same syllabus the traditional way - and they have a lot more fun doing it.
Developed and refined over the last 17 years, the Musiah Piano Teaching Method has already been taught to over 80,000 students in Australia alone. It's creator, Brendan Hogan, has literally spent thousands of hours training, observing and coaching more than 800 teachers in the highly specialised art of piano/keyboard teaching.
Through continual refinement, his piano teaching method has evolved and matured into the highly efficient and unique take on traditional piano teaching techniques known today as the Musiah Piano Teaching Method.
