Curriculum Overview

Prodigies Music is meant to be a fun and engaging way to introduce music, musical theory, musical concepts, sheet music and instruments to young children. It is completely family friendly with a large collection of videos and music.

The desk bells that will be used in the music as a starter instrument are a huge hit for children. They love to play them even when they’ve finished the lessons. Kids also begin learning music using Solfege hand signing.

Pros:

> The parent doesn’t need to have music experience
> You can choose to use just the video classes, just the books or both
> They have classes for several instruments
> Video lessons are short, fun and engaging
> Amazing customer service
> You can buy the published books or print them at home
> You can slow down the videos if they are too fast
> Gives solid foundations to proceed to more advanced instruments
> Introduces basic music theory
> Great selection of children’s and classical music such as holiday songs that can be learnt by the children
> They have lessons for a group classroom setting
> Different purchase options to make it affordable
> Constantly adding new content

Cons:

> Website might be overwhelming and difficult to navigate the first time you use it
> Videos for younger kids are very colorful and “busy” – overwhelming for children with unique sensory characteristics that don’t like too many stimuli
> Some activities in books might be too hard or too easy for certain ages – we choose to print pages we were interested in
> Some of the performance videos are really fast – we ended up slowing them down and also practiced the printed music before trying them (otherwise my son was getting frustrated)
> The bells are pricey (but they are very good quality with a warranty)
> If you want to do it without “screen time” you should have some experience with music
