Membership gives you an opportunity to email me for help and lower costs each month. The first month will be charged and the second month and future months are $40.00 a month. Once canceled, membership will cost the tuition at the time. Thanks for adding to your musical adventure with the Master Class Module, ‘Lunch Anyone’. This course is the next in a series of essential courses for building great technique and a structure for all future classes. Each song has parts that are repeated. This is what we will be learning by making each part of the song, a part of a sandwich. Maybe you will have two pieces of bread and a piece of cheese or two. Take your time and be sure to have a great position while you play. No sitting down. You simply can’t lean on your left foot when you are sitting. If you have any questions or just want to send me a video of your progress I would love to hear from you.

Using Gum Drop Notes is simple
With a degree in psychology and 30 years as a violin teacher, this incredible method developed to help students, no matter the age or learning difference, in their quest to deeply understand music theory, sight-reading and the actual tones being played.
The Gum Drop Notes color coding does not represent any psychological issue. We aren’t really seeing colors as we play. What is happening is that each note becomes a tone with a unique sound and color of its own. It takes on a characteristic that can be identified.
Keep in mind that the colors of the notes are subliminally teaching complex music theory concepts without a word of lecturing. Stem colors indicate the string the note is to be played on. Sharps and flats are reinforced by a circle of the color the note is moving toward. Card games to go along with the sheet music tunes teach the order and relationship of notes, symbols and rhythms, etc. Play-along movies bring the student up to polished speed and teach the the tune before the student begins to study the music.
It all seems too good to be true, but once you begin to use the Gum Drop Notes sheet music, play along mp4, and card games, you will be amazed at how fast you learn music theory and the music you are studying and memorizing.
