Learning Strategies for Musical Success 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. This inspiring interactive, differentiated* presentation will equip students, teachers, adult learners, and parents with the methods and mindset required to maximise the prospect of learning music enjoyably and successfully.

Content and concepts include repetition (blocked, variable and spaced, brain myelination) chunking (the brain looks to recognise patterns, why theory matters, short-term memory considerations) slow practice (the brain’s learning preference, Rachmaninoff’s principle) the quantity of experts (Ericsson’s violinists), and much more.

Michael Griffin is an educator, motivational speaker, author, conductor and pianist. Griffin’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. Griffin is particularly interested in motivation theory and the influence of mindset on achievement. He has consulted for Cambridge University Press and is the author of five books, the most recent Learning Strategies for Musical Success receiving universal acclaim. Griffin has presented for 250 schools and conferences in 25 countries.
