5yo beginner: Kodaly's method vs Alfred's?
« on: October 10, 2019, 07:46:51 PM »
Hi,
thinking to enroll my 5yo daughter into any of these two piano schools, closest to home, which follow these two methods respectively:

https://www.alfred.com/music-for-little-mozarts/

this is a collective piano class, which kids find more amusing and interactive

the second method is:
http://www.colourstringsdunblane.com/about-colourstrings.html
this is instead an individual piano class, where they teach following Kodaly's method and this book https://www.amazon.co.uk/Music-Mind-principles-applied-beginners/dp/0951259202 and also using hand sign.

Do you have any experience with either of them? any suggestion for a 5yo?
thanks in advance

Visit, observe, get impressions.  A program is only as good as the teachers running it.
