Musickid's Color Method was co-founded with fellow music teacher and best friend Genevieve Hunter. This method has been refined and tested on hundreds of students over the past 4 years. It has been so successful and well-received by our students and families that we are eager to share it with the world! We are confident it is the easiest way for children to learn to read music. Developed for piano, Musickid's Color Method is suitable for many other instruments including recorder, xylophone, guitar and more!
