We help Parents, Teachers and School Owners:
We can help you engage your kids in music using a fun, simple curriculum that teaches transferrable life skills through music. Children learn all the basic elements of music, only in a different order than traditional methods. By starting kids younger, we often keep them engaged longer giving them more time to soak up the benefits of music education on all areas of their lives.
“After the first lesson my kid (at the time 4 years old) was playing the keyboard with 10 fingers. Throughout the year he kept learning new materials and within a year surpassed my limited skills on the keyboard. And it’s all because Andrew has a method that works for kids. Since I’ve also seen other students accomplish a lot in a short time I know my kid is not an exception. ” – Igor M., parent of a Musicolor student.
We can help you make a bigger impact, reach more students and increase your income by starting students younger and keeping them longer. Our easy to follow teaching framework will give you confidence and ease in lesson planning with songs and materials students love.
“In my nearly 40 years of teaching music, I can confidently say, the Musicolor Method® is the best program on the market today.” – Trish Boril, professional piano and harp teacher, USA
We can help you grow your business, fill your roster and retain your best teachers through comprehensive professional development and a curriculum that enables your staff to teach younger students in a fun and simple way.
“The Musicolor Method makes it easy to teach music to pre-literate kids, opening up an entire market previously unreachable. My student-base doubled. My confidence as a teacher grew. I can use this forever too.” – Brett Crudgington, owner, Brownstone Music Lessons, Brooklyn, NY
Many schools and teachers don’t have enough students. Then, when a new one comes in, they don’t always stick around.
I’ve heard teachers say it’s the Internet! Video Games! Bad Parenting! Lack of Interest in Music!
But I, and all the teachers I work with, have had a very different experience.
Because of a new way of teaching music, we not only get fast results, but, we get students practicing on their own and telling all their friends how fun and easy it is!
This leads to more students you can help, more income and deeper longer lasting relationships with your students.
How can you help more students without overwhelming yourself?
The secret is our Musicolor Notation™
At the heart of the Musicolor Method is our unique Musicolor Notation. It truly is music everyone can read. This non-traditional instantly-readable notation has 6 distinct phases. It allows students of any age – even preliterate – to rapidly progress from complete beginner to reading on a staff in a matter of weeks.
Music Everyone Can Read™
The six phases progress beginners from simple to more complex, moving from basic to reading on a staff. By using the Musicolor Method, you easily onramp students from complete beginner into any other method of your choice.
Is This Just For Piano?
Yes and no. We recommend starting all children on piano as it is so logical, visual and makes explaining music theory so much easier. After a few weeks or months, you can easily make the leap to other instruments with a solid foundation.
The Musicolor Method Curriculum is currently piano-focused with suggestions for adapting to other instruments including: guitar, ukulele, lap dulcimer and glockenspiel. We are currently developing full curricula for each of these and more instruments.
Who Does This Help?
- Parents who want to give their children the gifts of music
- Children who can learn faster and with more fun
Musicians looking to start or increase teaching opportunities
- Private teachers – new and experienced
- Classroom music teachers
What makes it so effective?
Because students can read the notation on their own, they can take full responsibility for practicing. The Musicolor Notation is an extremely effective “mnemonic device.”
Other methods required lots of intervention from parents to help the students figure out the practice notes. Our Musicolor Notation allows even non-musical parents to play along with their children.
The Musicolor Method will allow you to
- Teach effortlessly
- Attract new students
- Retain your current students
- Make a difference in the world
- Increase your business
So whether you are a parent of young children, a 30 year teaching veteran,a complete newcomer to teaching, or a music school owner looking to improve your staff and bottom line, you will gain new perspectives and insights that will transform everything.

What Educators Are Saying About the Musicolor Method
I would recommend the course because it is so thoroughly set up with not only resources for The Musicolor Method but includes educational & professional components ( mostly in video format) that have really challenged me as a teacher- to get better & to grow as an educator. I’ve been teaching early childhood music for over 30 years but still love to grow. I had another amazing lesson with my student who has had learning difficulties. The Musicolor Method has really unlocked her capacity to make sense of reading music. My studio is now full! – Anne Vardanega, Sydney Australia
I taught my first lesson using the Musicolor Method to a new student on Wednesday and it was the best experience I’ve had teaching up to now. He left actually playing a song and was SUPER thrilled with himself. I’ve gotten off to a slow start in following through with the entire course, but I’ve thoroughly enjoyed each step. You bring a new dimension to teaching music that I’ve felt, but not known all the details behind it, like the article you just published, to just use one example. I look forward to finishing the courses, but I hope you keep adding to it as you have been. The ongoing education you discuss in the office hours videos is exactly what I need. – Marcie Estes, Virginia, USA
