Hi Hellene,
Can you please confirm you have got the videos?
It is ok if you have not yet got to them - it looks like a busy time of year for you - but I just wanted to confirm you have received them.
The children are progressing well with your level C introductory course, and I can take more videos of them playing with softmozart if that would be helpful.
Thanks
Lee

Thanks very much, Hellene!

I seem to have deleted my first reply (!) but thank you for your suggestions.
My children will continue with Kodaly every day as it is taught to every school classroom, every day. However instead of their private piano lessons, we are doing your program at home.

I am trialling your program because through Kodaly they understand, love and "speak" the Do Re Mi language they use every day (as opposed to ABC notes).
I can also see it is more rigorous and multi-faceted than other programs I have seen online, and am looking forward to extending my children's musicianship with the program.

I have started your lesson plans this week, however am not sure when to progress to the next notation (1-6) or start the next piece. Is it when their score is 0?

Also, it would be good to know what level to progress to for my 8 & 10 year olds who have been playing piano for 2 & 4 years and singing in solfa for 3 years (after they have finished the introductory level).

I wlll be looking at your manual more indepth over the weekend and this may answer some of my questions!

Have a good weekend,
Lee

Hi,

We are in Australia. Our children do Kodaly-based music lessons every day at school, but in Australia Kodaly is taught with a moveable Do. We are starting your program at home for their piano lessons and to improve their sight reading.

As your program has a fixed Do, I am considering using letter names as I do not want to confuse them, particularly when they get to scales etc I would appreciate your thoughts or any suggestions!

Thankyou,
Lee
