Tamsyn and her husband are launching a brand new membership website all focused on teaching children music.  How cool is that?

FREE Music Activity eBook!

Tamsyn is offering an incredible 60 page eBook, Music Games and Activities,  to give you a FREE sample of her work.  You can download this for free here!

Music Games and Activities

 

There are several different options with the Kickstarter, the best one in my opinion is the $30 option. During the Kickstarter campaign the $30 option will get you access to all the materials in the first two products {Beginning Rythym eBook & The Solfege Train eBook}, PLUS everything added to the membership website during the first SIX months!  The first two products alone are valued individually at over $35, what a great deal!

Get a quick peek at the entire plan for the Teaching Children Music membership site through this short video!

 

I asked Tamsyn what she had in store for the membership site and what we could expect as members.  My main question was focused on how the site will help the music illiterate parent feel comfortable and know where to start. She has several things in the works which are mentioned on the Kickstarter site, I asked her to give us more details about these so we would know what to expect.

Here’s what she told me…

 There will be several mini-courses.

  • For the recorder lessons, I will assume no musical background.  It is for the absolute beginner.
  • The sight-reading videos are sequential and will be great for beginners because they can learn the songs by rote (ear), and pick up the note reading skills as they go along.
  • I do have a course outline in hand for the music theory and ear training materials I’m making, based loosely on my college syllabi.  These will start easy but will progress rapidly and assume some music background.  My goal with this is to make advanced, college-level theory accessible to children.
  • The chord reading/play-by-ear course is not a traditional approach to piano, and would be good for an absolute beginner as well as one who has had lessons but does not know how read, build, and play chords.
  • The story books will stand independent of everything else, as will many of the games and printables I will make on the side.

If you’ve been looking for materials to really teach music literacy, this just might be for you!  be sure to take a peek sometime this month so you can take part in the Kickstarter and get the amazing start up deal to the new membership site.

Tamsyn is available to answer questions, to clarify how to use the materials, and so forth.  You can find contact info at the bottom of the Kickstarter page!
