Get to know me a little better! My name is Jerald Simon and in this video I introduce myself, tell you a little about me, my company, Music Motivation, and how and why I began creating a new "Cool Song" for the piano every month to motivate piano students the fun way. If you know piano students who need a little motivation to help them in their piano playing, or, if you know a piano teacher who is looking for fun, cool music to motivate piano students, please share this video with them. Thanks for watching and sharing the video. Get motivated about the piano with Music Motivation®!
Once or twice a month I create a new "Theory Tip Tuesday" video and FREE PDF download where I teach piano students (and piano teachers) music theory - the FUN way! I focus my piano video lessons on three main areas: (1) Theory Therapy, (2) Innovative Improvisation, and (3) Creative Composition and arranging. All of my music books focus on these three areas.
