The Game Of Practice: With 53 Tips To Make Practice Fun!

"Fantastic book for parents and teachers alike. Andrew has compiled a list of tried and true techniques, including many brilliant ideas I never would have thought of myself. " - A reader

What our teachers and clients say

We solved the problem of traditional music lessons

PROBLEM: Traditional methods force you to learn abstract symbols before you can even start to play. 

SOLUTION: We enable any beginner to succeed Using color as educational scaffolding enables anyone to start playing immediately. It makes learning music intuitive and direct.

PROBLEM: Traditional methods need to wait until child can read, usually 7-8 years old, unless a prodigy.

SOLUTION: Our simplified Musicolor notation makes it possible to teach any age -even preliterate and special needs students - no prodigies required.

PROBLEM: Traditional methods start with boring exercises and scales leading to students dropping out or not practicing.

SOLUTION: Our fun songs are exercises in disguise to build confidence through competence and joy!

What is the Instinctual Learning Technique?

The Instinctual Learning Technique is a 7-point framework for teaching and learning that aligns with principles of early childhood development. By redesigning music using Design Thinking, we've created an adapted curriculum that is universally beneficial to all beginners.

The specially designed systematic instruction focuses on a series of simple tasks with predictive outcomes.

This makes it a breeze to teach and so enjoyable to learn.

Who does this help?

Our universal design curriculum makes this suitable for teaching ALL BEGINNERS but also including those with learning disabilities or developmental delays.

We've had successful applications of our program with students on the autism spectrum, ADHD, and Downs syndrome.

And many parents have appreciated the easy, enjoyable lesson plans that they too have either started or returned to playing music again.

From simple to complex 

We flatten the learning curve by using color on keys, finger and notation

Educators say

“I realized that learning music doesn’t have to be so complicated. The Musicolor Method approach is built on scaffolding, I.e., teaching the language of music step by step with fun activities and relatable music.”
