Does this sound like you...?
- You feel like you're wandering aimlessly from one idea to the next and you need more of a "game plan" for your teaching
- You want to teach more creatively, to make your music lessons fun and engaging but you struggle to know where to start and you feel stuck doing the same old thing
- You're tired of wasting time trawling the internet, collecting and carefully storing music theory games...only to forget what you wanted them for later and leave them scattered around your studio
- You wish that you could always find the perfect printable to effectively teach your student about a particular music theory concept
- You want to feel more fulfilled by your teaching and pass on your love of music to your students
It doesn't have to be like that. Music teaching can be fun again and your students can get amazing results.
You can teach through games and improvisation and not feel like you're constantly battling the clock to fit everything in. You can give your students more holistic and creative lessons than you had growing up.
You've got the love of music. All you need are the tools and support.
That's where Vibrant Music Teaching comes in.
It's organised, clean and simple. Exactly what you need to save you headaches and make your lesson planning easier and more effective.

Meet the Creator
Hey, have we met yet? I'm Nicola Cantan, a piano teacher in Ireland and the creator of Vibrant Music Teaching.
I've been teaching piano for over 15 years but it was about 7 years ago that everything started to change for me. Before that, I had been a pretty average teacher. I was ok, I was pleasant, but I wouldn't have knocked anyone's socks off.
Then I discovered piano teaching blogs. I found out about using improvisation, composing and music teaching games and I realised that I could bring my design degree (yes, fashion design actually, see the photo below for evidence!) and creative brain into my piano teaching and provide my students with a unique lesson experience.
Since then I've become addicted to sharing my discovery and ideas with other music teachers through my blog Colourful Keys, books like The Piano Practice Physician's Handbook and Rhythm in 5 and speaking at events online and in-person around the world.
I created Vibrant Music Teaching in 2017 because I could see how many teachers wanted to teach more creatively and use games more effectively, but they didn't have the support or tools they needed to do it. It began as a little bee of an idea buzzing around my head and it's now a thriving community where all my favourite teachers in the world hang out and get inspired.
I hope you'll join us and get in on the fun.

Teacher in Texas, USA
“If you teach on the regular basis, this is a membership you cannot be without.
Whenever you hit the wall and don't know how to address a problem of a student during their lessons, there are answers to that problem right here. You can see a lesson video, or print a game to help your student understand things better.
And the webinars are great to keep learning about teaching, and not only teaching, but teaching well, so your students want to come back."
Teacher in Ohio, USA
“Your passion is infectious! I've taught for more than 10 years and I feel renewed. Joining has been inspiring, and reminded me why I chose this in the first place - a passion for music and music teaching.”
Teacher in Ontario, Canada
"There are lots and lots of games for extra practice in almost every area of study. This helps with lesson planning - especially for group lessons - and keeps the students loving their lessons. This helps with retention and referrals and grows your studio! Only good things to come of this membership!"

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
QUESTIONS TEACHERS HAVE ASKED BEFORE SAYING "YES!" TO MEMBERSHIP.
The current price is $25 per month or $250 annually. If you join at this price it will never change for you, even if the fees for new members go up.
Yes, you can do this yourself within the account management. If you cancel, you won’t be charged for the following month/year.
All prices are quoted and charged in US dollars.
Yes. Whenever there is a difference in terminology, I always make two versions.
No problem! We have created a separate solfege version of the pdf for fixed do solfege teachers on games where this is necessary.
We do not have Spanish, German or any other language editions. However, in most cases, only the teacher would have to speak English to play the game. It is rare that we use actual English music terms within the game.
We also have an area in our community where members can share their own "unofficial" translated versions of the games with each other.
The pdfs are provided on A4 sized paper, however, they are all designed to work well on letter paper if you just tick the “fit to page” option when printing.
Many of the graphics are not very "kiddy" so you can use them for any age. Most teachers find them most useful for kids under 13, but many also use games with their adult students with great success!
Absolutely. Teaching preschoolers is one of my specialities. In fact, we have a course that will walk you through a whole year of lessons with a new preschool piano student.
The range is truly all the way from newbie preschoolers (think key names and finger numbers), up to late intermediate concepts like interval qualities, chord inversions and Roman numeral analysis.
