I've been working on a little book containing all of the creative teaching ideas that I have collected over the years. Get in touch if you would like more information. Many games and ideas can also be used during practice sessions at home.

Comptine d'un autre été : l'après midi
All of my private students recorded parts of Yann Tiersen's piece from the film Amelie, Comptine d'un autre été : l'après midi. The final split-screen video turned out really beautifully and I'm very proud of my students!
