In this episode:
I’m super-excited to welcome my first guest to the Music Tech Teacher podcast: Tim Topham, a Melbourne based creative piano teacher, blogger and podcaster who uses technology on a daily basis. Tim has his own website – timtopham.com – and also heads up the Inner Circle – an exclusive membership community designed just for creative piano teachers who want ideas, tips and support.
Tim and I chat about some of his favourite tech tools, apps and other tips in this interview episode.
