*Sorry this challenge is now complete!*

Do you remember how awesome it felt when an older sibling or friend taught you how to play something cool on the piano? There’s such a sense of freedom in playing without sheet music – it might even be what made you want to keep learning!

You might worry that teaching music by ear is somehow cheating, but the benefits are being recognised more and more. From developing awareness of musical patterns to improving technique, rote learning has a lot to recommend it.

But how do you actually go about teaching a piece by ear?

That’s what the Rote Rockstar Challenge is all about.

This 5-day challenge will walk you through the stages of teaching a piece by rote. By the end of the challenge you’ll be ready to include it with confidence in your lessons.

Even better, you’ll know where to find great music to teach by rote. You’ll always have something fun to pull out for a student who needs a break from the page.

The challenge starts on September 13th, and it’s 100% free.

We’ll send you simple and clear tasks to do every day for 5 days. All you need to do is set aside 15-30 minutes each day and show up.

Just as important, you’ll have the community support you need to stay on track too. When you sign up you’ll get access to the pop-up Facebook group where you can get practical advice and discuss the challenges with other participants.

So sign up, grab your favourite notebook, and get ready to rock rote teaching!
