Event Date: Sunday 10 February, 3:30 - 5:00pm

A MUST-SEE Presentation for all students, parents and teachers.

All Age Music invites you to a Special presentation on DEVELOPING MUSICAL SKILL by Michael Griffin

‘There’s no better way to start the musical year than by attending this presentation. There will be a lot of take away moments that you can immediately apply to your music learning and understanding.’

It’s a simple connection but a powerful one!

The internal drive required to pursue an activity relies heavily on the greatest of all motivators – making progress. For musical progress, nothing is as important as the quality and the quantity of practice time. Specialist in fostering intrinsic motivation environments and expert achievement, Michael Griffin, will equip students, adult learners, and parents with the methods and mindset required to maximise the prospect of learning music enjoyably and successfully.

This inspiring and interactive presentation will focus on concepts including:

  • Repetition (blocked, variable and spaced, brain myelination)
  • Chunking (the brain looks to recognise patterns, why theory matters, short-term memory)
  • Slow practice (the brain’s learning preference)
  • The quantity of experts (Ericsson’s violinists)
  • And of course, the core importance of cultivating a growth mindset.

Michael Griffin is an educator, speaker, author, conductor and pianist. Michael’s talks are inspired by theory of motivation and the premise that the greatest predictor of progress – music and otherwise – is the quality and the quantity of learning time. He has consulted for Cambridge University Press and is the author of seven books, Learning Strategies for Musical Success receiving universal acclaim. Michael has presented for 350 schools and conferences in more than 25 countries.

Everyone is welcome to attend. Open to general public.
