  • A revolutionary new technique allowing you to teach music with confidence
  • Popular songs and how to learn and play many more

Do you not have a musical bone in your body? Do you envy teachers who saunter into their classroom, guitar slung over the shoulder and ready to entertain (and calm) children with an impromptu singalong?

If fast tracking your way to understanding, playing and teaching music is of interest, then you need to do this course.

Learn the fundamental basics quickly and easily as Tom Benjamin shows you that you do not need years of musical experience to play an instrument or teach basic music lessons.

Join us to expand your teaching skill set and your enjoyment of music.

“The presenter was very knowledgeable about the topic and shared a great amount of resources.”Teacher in QLD

“It was great to learn the fundamental chord structures and finger positions which will make my music lessons just so much more enjoyable for my students – and for me.”Teacher in SA

“Good age -appropriate ideas & content relevant to primary level music, which is what I was looking for. I liked how it focused on getting students playing by ear as many kids don’t have ability to do more. It provided great resources & clips to use as background music.  However, some music may be too complex for younger learners”Teacher in NSW
