This program includes real-time improvisational projects. Create, share, inspire… it’s live and dynamic!

Play an Improv is an ongoing series of unique improvisational projects for a global community. Join with other musicians right across the spectrum of geography, age, experience and instruments. Share ideas, recordings, and inspirations on the same improvisational project at the same time.

This program is currently in development.

Play a Window is for students from around 7 years old to adults.

This program meets the needs of students with a broad spectrum of playing experience, from beginner to advanced.

Students play their own piano improvisation along to short movies viewed on a device at the piano, expressing the mood, colour and nuance - it's live and spontaneous! The movie scenes come alive through musical interpretation, revealing the true musician inside.

This is a multi-sensory, 3-dimensional musical experience!

Play a Story is for students of all ages, from 4 to 104!

You can experience Play a Story it in two different ways: interacting with the Story book and interacting with the Movie

For younger students - Interact with the Story Book

Travelling through a storybook world, children learn to listen, feel and literally ‘play the story’ across the whole piano, while it is being read. Play a Story takes between 12-18 months to complete.

Here at Play a Story, we believe the "home-coach" plays an integral part throughout a child's musical journey.  In this 10 minute Parent Introductory Video we offer a glimpse into the wonder of this extraordinary program. Enjoy!

The musical dress-up corner

What would the music sound like if it was the wind in the forest, or a shell tossed around the ocean? In the world of Play a Story, every imaginative thought, every emotion is an opportunity for students to express themselves in the language of music – a language that can be deeply profound.

The vocabulary of their new language comes in the form of simple piano motifs - short musical phrases or ideas. The motif incorporates melody, harmony and rhythm. How the motif is played (using dynamics and octave placement) describes what is happening in the story. Students are learning key theoretical concepts, forming a solid playing foundation for their journey forward.
