Ep. 49: “Traditional learning methods don’t work for me.” Utilizing Multiple Intelligences in Learning, with Graeme Winder

Have you ever heard of someone who eagerly began learning to play a musical instrument, excited by the idea of creating music; and before long felt so frustrated and discouraged by the process of translating a page of dots and symbols into meaningful sound that they gave it up and decided they are “just not musical?” Our guest today can relate to that story, and he has dedicated his life to connecting kids – and adults — to music in a new and powerful way. Graeme Winder is CEO of Meloquest, he’s an advocate for music education reform, and has had great success teaching music using a non-traditional method based on the Multiple Intelligences Theory, a theory that everyone learns in different ways.
