Harmony Road founder and composer, Jan Keyser, developed the first course in 1981. It has grown and been continually refined to insure student success. It is ideal to provide the basis for more advanced musical training as well as a lifetime of enjoyment of music. Lessons include:
• Keyboard discovery and playing
• Solfege* singing and ear training
• Rhythm activities and movement.
• Creative activities and composing
*The Solfege method uses the traditional do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti-do names for notes. Solfege is a powerful tool for developing cognitive skills, as well as a time-honored way to teach the relationship between notes on the scale. Harmony Road students also learn traditional music reading through keyboard education.
