• As an avenue to heighten their levels of interests, motivation and participation – going beyond their boundaries and taking a leap outside the four walls of the music studio or classroom.

So if you wish to put some spices into your teaching strategies, I suggest that you take your learners to the real world – not confining them inside the classroom or the music studio. Teach them how to become more innovative, independent, active and self-reliable in using these technologies while they learn, understand and love learning and playing the piano.
