Have you tried this easy, colorful method on piano?

New songbook allows parents to teach their children piano even if they have never played before

If you are the parent of a 3 to 6 year old (or any child) and you want to give them the experience of music, check this out.

Piano is a great first instrument.

We believe all children should learn some basic piano.  Numerous studies have proven a positive link between success in life, school and work with some participation in music education.

But, it hasn’t been easy for many.  If you’re not a prodigy, then you may have found learning to read music difficult.  This method allows your child (and even you the parent) to learn the basics of piano by using color.

A Colorful Fun New Way To Learn Piano Is Here

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

New Songbook Enables Even Preliterate Children To Play Piano Using Color and Simple Graphics

Now, any parent using the highly successful Musicolor Method®, can teach their child piano with the release of the songbook, Piano For Kids. The book (already available in Amazon) is the first volume in a six book series. It includes basic instruction that allows anyone, even without prior musical experience, to learn the basics of piano and music. Color makes it easy and fun!  

Experienced music teacher Andrew Ingkavet, created the Musicolor Method® as a homeschooling project for his son, who began asking for lessons at three years old.  Not finding a teacher willing to accept him, Andrew began developing a new curriculum for preschoolers. As a lifelong music educator, he gathered ideas from both inside and outside traditional music education. The Musicolor Method® associates color to musical notes with songs introducing technical exercises. The lessons are organized to eventually lead to full musical fluency and have been proven effective by teachers both in the USA and around the world.  

Numerous studies have shown a positive correlation between success in academics, career, and life with music education. Yet, until now, it has been extremely difficult to teach younger children piano and general music in a simple, fun and effective way.

Andrew Ingkavet teaches children, parents and educators to make music a part of their life. He is the founder and creator of the Musicolor Method®, and owns a thriving music school in Brooklyn, NY. He was one of the first VJ’s for MTV-Asia and former VP, Creative Director at FCBi. He holds a Bachelors of Music from New York University where he was a Scholar in Education.

What if there was an easy piano songbook with simple instructions?

An Easy Piano Songbook

After over a decade in development, we’re thrilled to announce that our first easy piano songbook Piano For Kids Volume 1 will be launching at Amazon on May 22nd, 2018.  We’ve been testing and proving the success of this curriculum worldwide through our online classroom.  And now you can get it here.

Piano For Kids: Teach complete beginners how to play instantly with the Musicolor Method – for preschoolers, grade schoolers and beyond!

How the Musicolor Method Works

Why the Musicolor Method works?

We created a visual way to communicate sound with color.

Kids make direct connections from sheet music to keys to fingers.

We bypass symbols like letter names, clef signs and staff and get right to playing music. The direct labeling and color scaffolding make learning fun, fast and easy.

Even preliterate and special-needs students can use this. They intuitively understand and know what to play. This gives instant confidence.

They can practice on their own!

Progress is rapid. By playing simple songs over and over, students can memorize a repertoire of songs and begin honing technique.

Each lesson adds new patterns. Eventually, we add details like structure, rhythm, harmony and more.

There are six phases of Musicolor Notation™. This book covers phase one.

What makes this unique?

We start with playing first.

We use color on keys, fingers, and a simple notation. Color is direct labelling and creates a scaffolding for children to quickly figure out what to do. It makes learning to play fast, fun, and intuitive.

Using the simple proven approach in this book, you can teach your preschool child (and yourself), to play piano (or keyboard) while beginning to learn about the fundamentals of music.

Each song is a finger exercise in disguise. You should only work on one per week. This allows your child to build up the strength and dexterity to tackle a new pattern the following week. Try not to speed through

Here’s a sneak peek video flip through.
