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.

What is the most powerful thing to teach all children?

The most powerful thing to teach all children

We parents care deeply about giving our children the best chances possible.  But we share similar fears:  What if they get in with the wrong crowd?  What if they are not as resilient as we wish?  What if they lose their confidence and their way?

As long as our kids are self empowered, find their purpose, voice and happiness, we have done our jobs as parents.

In the future, when artificial intelligence and robots eliminate many current jobs, what skills are ones machines cannot replace?

I believe it’s creativity combined with curiosity and passion that make us undeniably human.  It’s the unexpected spark of joy that comes when combining disparate unrelated ideas to make something new and familiar at the same time that helps solve a problem.

Learning to make music activates creativity, curiosity and passion.  It also teaches skills that directly transform the lives of our children.   The skills of focus, practice, listening, harmonization, perseverance, public performance and so many more all are activated by music.  Music lessons are an excellent path for personal development.

Here’s a manifesto for our new world.

We Believe in Music

We are resonance souls,

all made of sound

Each a string on a splendid harp

Echoing one great song

We find our voice

A song which we alone were born to sing

To warm hearts and light the path

Of all our true selves

– A manifesto for parents, teachers and Musicolor teachers everywhere.
