Does your child love to sing? Have they started asking for music lessons? Or have they tried lessons and gave up because it was too hard?
Many studies have shown the positive link between music education and brain development. Over the last decade, hundreds of preschoolers music have been introduced to music and the positive effects of music lesson through the Musicolor Method. It uses color to directly label what to play and when. It makes learning piano and other instruments fun, fast and effective.
Hi, I'm Andrew Ingkavet, a parent and music teacher. I've had the fortunate opportunity to work in many areas of education, media and design. This curriculum pulls in the power of Early Childhood Education, interface and information design and kinesthetic learning to truly create a student-centric model.
Imagine your child actually playing and practicing piano without you having to intervene to explain everything.
Since 2015, I've been training music teachers around the world in this method. As many parents have asked for more information, I decided to create a course for you. You don't need a background as a music teacher, just a familiarity with music and an instrument.
The only requirement is to have a piano or digital keyboard and some masking tape or colored stickers.
Study after study has proven the positive link between music and brain development. Learning to make music also trains young minds in the basic tools of successful life. These tools include: the ability to focus on a problem, listening and feedback, harmonization and fitting in, and creative solutions to problems. Perseverance, goal-setting and public performance also are enhanced.
We are all composers, writing the songs of our lives,
resonance souls made of sound, each a string on a cosmic harp,
echoing one great song that allows us to find our voice.
This song, which we alone were born to sing,
empowers us to warm hearts,
light the path and guide us all to our true selves.
This is why we teach & learn to make music.
