The Keepers Teacher – Book 2

Each year you will be charged $1,000 until you cancel.  You can upgrade to the next class but once you cancel you must pay the going tuition.

The songs in the Keepers Module are a compilation of the Suzuki repertoire, as well as lots of fun extra tunes.  Composer stories, sheet music, play-along music and mp3’s of each of the songs help the student fly through the music, memorizing and understanding the important techniques.

When studying a piece of music, it is always fun to know a little about this composer. Each song in the ‘Keepers’, book 2 has an insightful discussion about the composer imagining what he might have been thinking or what his life might have been like. ‘Chorus’ is found in the Suzuki repertoire and color-coded in the Scales Aren’t Just a Fish Thing curriculum. To study a piece correctly, it helps to know the correct bowing and the correct fingering. Scales Aren’t Just a Fish Thing teaches complex music theory concepts with clues and crutches throughout the song. Memorize the music quickly while learning subtle bits of theory by using play-along music at different speeds

Scales Aren’t Just a Fish Thing is a back door to teaching complex music theory concepts through fun gum drop notes, card games, fingerboards, and play-along music. ‘Chorus from “Judas Maccabaeus” G. F.Handel’ is the first song in the ‘Keepers’ series. – Musette, J. S. Bach – Hunter’s Chorus, C. M. von Weber – ‘Waltz J. Brahms’ -Long Long Ago, T. H. Bayly – Bourree G. F. Handel – Eensy Weensy Spider – Theme from “Witches Dance” N. Paganini -The Two Grenadiers R. Schumann – Gavotte J. B. Lully , Air on G String J.S.Bach – Gavotte from Mignon -Minuet in G L. von Beethoven, Amazing Grace – Minuet by L. Boccherini, Teddy Bear’s Picnic, Rigoletto by Verdi
Learning the complexities of music theory can be difficult. Scales Aren’t Just a Fish Thing makes it easy, even for pre-school children.

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.
