After over 20 years of teaching and coaching students of all ages, Simon Horsey is perfectly poised to help any student achieve their potential. During his time in education he has had the pleasure of teaching Music (on a class and individual basis), Debating, Accelerated Learning Skills and Theory of Knowledge to school and university students across the world.
As a music teacher Simon realised that most music students are never really taught how to practice effectively and his research into smarter, more efficient and effective music practice technique resulted in the book Practice Makes Perfect which ultimately developed into the online course Make Your Practice Perfect. He has also published the first of a three volume series of interactive books for the iPad, Essentials Of Music Theory: How To Read And Appreciate Music, teaching music theory using multimedia content and interactive quizzes and to help students learn, .
Simon's interest in making music learning and practice more effective naturally developed into research on accelerated learning and memory in order to devise techniques to help students learn more efficiently across all subjects. This culminated in the introductions of ALPS (Accelerated Learning Programme for Students) at the schools in which he taught consisting of work on learning, memory, self study, revision and exam techniques. As these ideas developed he was also invited to give guest lectures at several international schools, universities and companies.
Having worked with adults in addition to school and university students, Simon has a deep insight into how the learning process works (or doesn't work) across all age groups. His courses are deigned to be used by students of all ages, because it is never too late to start learning more effectively.
