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 with the mission of inspiring students and staffs to learn smarter. Recently, I have given conference presentations in Europe, Asia, The Middle East, Africa and Australasia. In 2013 I consulted for Cambridge University Press, helping to redesign music education curriculum for the Kazakhstan Ministry of Education. I continue to enjoy offering CPD for music-teacher organisations, and to music students onn how to practise well. Indeed, my new book Learning Strategies for Musical Success is full of advice and general wisdom for teachers, students and parents. Details of my student presentations, workshops and staff professional development are in the Lectures and Workshops section of this site.
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 is now available and selling well. Details of these books, including YouTube descriptions and testimonials, are in the Music Education Books section. Each book is available for purchase by clicking on the link above, through Amazon, or through me directly.
Recordings includes a library of school choir and jazz ensemble mp3s, and my own piano recordings. Please consider purchasing my new CD Consolation: Beautiful and Relaxing Piano Classics. Ideal for newcomers to classical music, it would make a thoughtful but iinexpensive gift. You can listen to a sample of every track at Amazon, and purchase mp3s (single or album) or the physical CD. Free resources includes eight ’Great Pianists’ podcasts, five 'Music and Mathematics' podcasts, as well as several music education articles written by me.
