How to teach students with ADHD
What do you do when a student shows so much enthusiasm for making music at the piano but has trouble controlling that enthusiasm? How do you say "yes" to parents who want to enroll their child in lessons when you don't feel equipped to deal with someone who fidgets and lacks focus?
What method books and sheet music work best for those who are easily distracted?
Pam Simpson is a fellow piano teacher and lives just down the road from me. She has the answers to these and many more questions. Pam is not only a teacher of students with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder but, is parenting one as well.
I won't waste any more words. Watch the interview video below, download her extremely helpful and concise handout and help those those with ADHD unlock their musical voice at the keys.

A HUGE thank you to Pam Simpson. She is an unsung hero, teacher, wife and mom who works tirelessly for a local teachers' association and is the chair of our local National Federation of Music Clubs festival.
Pam quietly and effectively organizes and leads many events in the piano teacher community.
I am grateful for her ongoing service, her expertise on teaching piano and teaching those with ADHD and her friendship.
