Richard Harris has been teaching piano, theory, composition, GCSE, A/S and A-level music to pupils since 1990.
In lessons he has often used a number of specially designed games as fun study guides in the learning of scales, arpeggios, rhythm and musical memory. Much enjoyed by pupils, elements of these games feature in ‘Pianoworld’ (Faber Music), Richard Harris' educational collaboration with Joanna MacGregor in which puzzles and games are used to explore composition, notation and the first steps toward piano-playing.
rfkharris.com is happy to offer these games for free.
