“Trying to understand is like straining through muddy water. Have the patience to wait! Be still and allow the mud to settle.”

- Lao Tzu


There are many ways of learning music, and there are many instruments to learn. We learn best when we are having fun, and when we overlay knowledge in as many senses as possible.

This method brings together over a decade of fieldwork, reasarch and testing to harness and manipulate the power of flow-state cognition in music through games. It is suitable for all learners, including absolute beginners, but children younger than 4 years old may struggle (things like left and right, the alphabet, numbers up to 4 etc.)

By using this method, you will be playing multi-sensory music games designed to embed foundational musical neurological infrastructure, inspire creativity, induce flow-state in melodic composition and rhythm / time-feel, release your voice and sing confidently.

This method and the games involved are great for individual and for co-operative learning, between age and ability groups, and are particularly effective in larger groups including in classroom settings and workshops.

Games can be played at the same time by different players at different levels of difficulty, and scale infinitely - having been a musician for 29 years and a professional for 14, I still use them on a daily basis in my own practice, both as tools of composition and as tools of analysis, as warmups and cooldowns, as icebreakers in workshops and lessons, and just for fun.

Good luck, and have fun!
