Grant Wood Piano

Grant Wood Piano


Grant is an utterly fantastic piano teacher!! I cannot believe how much my son’s piano skills came on over the summer. Grant isn’t just interested in teaching basic piano, he ensures that he lays vital foundations for a future pianist. I genuinely can not recommend him highly enough!

Welcome to Grant's Piano Studio page! This is where we celebrate the achievements and success of students at the studio

Dogs...A Musician's Best Friend? - The Bulletproof Musician

Amazing idea, go South Africa Reading is often thought of as a calming and relaxing activity. Something you might do before going to sleep at night, or on vacation while sitting poolside with an ice cold strawberry lemonade. But for many young children, reading can actually be quite stressful and cause a lot of anxiety. Because… 26/03/2017

“Brain Fatigue” and the Best Thing to Do on a Practice Break - The Bulletproof Musician

So nature is more restorative than the city...who knew? Still, wholesome food for thought. Whether we’re practicing, studying, or doing our taxes, there comes a point where our brains begin to get a little fatigued, our thinking gets a little sluggish, and it’s difficult to think productively and creatively (though tax preparation is probably not the best time to be flexing our creativity...

A Practice Hack That Could Significantly Boost Practice Efficiency (but May Not Feel Like It In the Moment) - The Bulletproof Musician

True! I don’t know if it’s true, or just my imagination, but I’ve always felt that my most productive practice years were actually my very earliest years, up until about the time I was in mid-to-late elementary school. In that period of my life, practice was structured in a very particular way. One key fa... 02/01/2017

Why Visualization Ought to Include More than What We See with Our Eyes - The Bulletproof Musician We often hear about athletes’ use of mental imagery techniques in preparation for competition (like here). And on the surface, mental practice does seem like a pretty straightforward concept. But sometimes it’s not really clear what “mental practice” ought to look like. Does “imagery” suggest that w... 13/12/2016

Exam Resources for Elementary Players - Practising the Piano When I started this blog in 2011, I wanted to set out what I called The Practice Tools. These are universal principles for what we do when we practise, applicable to all ages and levels of ability no matter our pianistic heritage or technical approach. You could even think of these tools as techniqu...

Learning Something New? Try This Mental Practice Tweak That Could Accelerate the Learning Process. - The Bulletproof Musician

Just like counting sheep. There are many stories of athletes who visualized themselves practicing before going to bed, whether it be a baseball player engaging in a little batting practice or a diver rehearsing their dives. But you’ll often hear discrepancies among their accounts of how and what they visualized. Some describ... 12/11/2016

How to Stop Worrying so Much About What Other People Think - The Bulletproof Musician

This is worth recollecting often. Do you remember the first time you got a “like” on something you posted on Facebook? That little spark of excitement you felt was fun, right? Like a standing ovation, glowing review, or positive feedback from fans in the audience, it’s nice to get that little bit of validation - to feel like we’ve e... 08/11/2016
