Teach your child absolute pitch
Give the lifelong gift of true music literacy.
- Absolute pitch is
the best foundation for musical development.
Just as phonemes are the basis of spoken language, pitch
sounds are the basis of music. With absolute pitch, your child
will have full command of the A-B-C's of musical language. We
Hear and Play is the musical primer from which your child can
develop a complete mastery of music-- to hear, "speak", read and write
music as easily as their native language.
- Build the neural "hardwiring"
for your child's success in music.
Your child will learn music as a second language. As
you may know, in a child's early years they are especially able to learn new
languages, because their brains have not yet fixed into adult patterns of
knowledge. By giving your child musical training during these most
critical formative years, you literally "wire" their brain to be able to
comprehend and express music as a complete language, and to have a deep
appreciation of sound and harmony.
- We Hear and Play
is playful and fun; it is intensive, not intense.
The We Hear and Play method is based on playing
educational games, not on forced repetitive drilling. Your child
will want to "practice" because it is a fun activity, not a
dreary chore. The We Hear and Play games are highly
directed in their goals, but highly flexible in their approach, so that
your child can fully express his or her imagination and creativity.
- We Hear and Play training is transferable to any instrument.
We Hear and Play teaches your child to mentally
the musical sounds they want to play. This way, a student is
not trapped into seeing printed notes only as piano-key assignments.
Instead, because they imagine the sounds, they can adjust to any
instrument's fingering, "finding" the same notes in new locations.
- You can teach the course yourself, at home.
All you need is a piano and the
We Hear and Play materials.
Although it is helpful to have an instructor who can guide you and your
child towards superior technique and advanced development, you can teach
your child the basic skills of absolute pitch and piano literacy just by
playing the We Hear and Play games, following the guidelines in
the Education for Absolute Pitch handbook.
