Welcome to Griffin Music Education

Hello and welcome to my site. I have been involved with music education for more than 25-years in Australia, England and Dubai and regularly visit schools in other countries doing my best to inspire students and staffs to learn smarter. Highlights for 2014 include some very satisfying outcomes in my role as Head of Music at CBC, and several guest appearances in schools throughout the UK and Australia. I enjoyed adjudicating the North Queensland eisteddfod competitions, and guest conducting at the Pemulwuy National Male Voice Choir Festival in Brisbane. 2015 has me involved with more exciting school projects including a visit to The United World College, Singapore, more schools throughout the UK and Australia, and a Keynote address for the Victorian Music Educator's 'Sounds Great' biennial conference. Some of my presentations are open to the public; please contact me should you like to attend. Details of my student presentations, workshops and staff professional development are in the Lectures and Workshops page. I am very pleased with the response to my books.  Learning Strategies for Musical Success continues to receive wonderful reviews; you can read these on the page dedicated to it in this site. To order, please email me

As well as 'Learning Strategies for Musical Success' I have three other music education books suitable for a range of age groups. The popular Music and Keyboard in the Classroom is aimed for general music classes within a keyboard laboratory setting. Modern Harmony Method is suitable for more senior students involved in composition, arranging and harmonization. Good news for choral conductors; Bumblebee! Rounds & Warm-ups for Choirs, containing 123 warm-ups and rounds, is now in its second edition. Details of these books are in the Music Education Books section.


Recordings includes a library of school choir and jazz ensemble mp3s, and my own piano recordings. Please consider supporting my new CD's Consolation: Beautiful and Relaxing Piano Classics, and Shimmer: Sparkling Piano Classics. Ideal for newcomers to classical music, it would make a thoughtful but iinexpensive gift. Free resources includes eight ’Great Pianists’ podcasts, five 'Music and Mathematics' podcasts, as well as several music education articles written by me.
