Lauren, Homeschooling Mom of 2

We homeschool our 5 and 7 year old boys, and we knew we wanted to include music education classes at some point, and we figured we’d just take classes that were available locally. But then I saw the Preschool Prodigies videos on YouTube and how my kids LOVED them, so I looked into the program. The Lifetime Membership was a no-brainer when we compared the cost of two kids to attend weekly classes locally–for about the cost of one year of weekly group instruction, we could get instant access to music lessons and practice materials that my kids can use DAILY–and for many years to come! We love everything about the PsP program–the workbooks, the videos, the bells. My kids are playing and singing with solfege, handsigns, numbers, colors, and the note letter names! They are speaking a whole new language! We are so impressed with how quickly can effectively they are learning!

Brittany Rodriguez

The lifetime membership has been a wonderful addition to our Homeschooling life! I have 3 children ages 6, 4 and 18 months. They all adore this program. I love that it gives me the freedom to use it anywhere and everywhere. The cost savings is tremendous as to what it would take for one or just two of my kids but will be amazing for all three! The time savings for me as compared to having to pack everyone up to go to different lessons! The ease of the lessons for the kids. It’s something they look forward to, ask for and enjoy while they’re learning. All three of them enjoy the lessons and their own levels. We’re looking forward to adding in a recorder soon for Christmas. I love how it does all the work for me with lesson plans and songbooks and workbooks. They are very well thought out and laid out. As a parent we all know anything that makes our life easier is fantastic! This program does it!! It’s a wonderful program. I fully recommend it and could keep on gushing about all the wonderful things but I will leave you with this. “Do, Do, Do” my 18 month old after his first time seeing the first video! He loved it! And says this every time he sees the red bell.

Marina, Mom of 2, South Africa

“My kids are both eagerly singing and playing along with Mr Rob’s videos – often in tune, too.  They give ‘concerts’ to anyone who happens to be around after a music lesson to show off what they have learned (cue their long-suffering daddy).  I love how your program made our house come alive with music!  Thank you so much!”

– Marina, South Africa

Diana Ewing

I am an elementary music teacher and I love using preschool/primary prodigies with my students. My students love using the videos to sing and play their boomwhackers! My two year old loves singing and playing her bells with the videos as well! She is always asking for her Do show. She also mimics Mr. Rob on the cya later section. These videos are great and so beneficial!

Debra Bennet

When I came upon Preschool Prodigies I was in awe! I just had to become a Lifetime Member. The videos by Mr.Rob left me in tears…tears of joy and goosebumps! This was what I wanted all these years. Now with Preschool Prodigies they are actually learning a new languageI it is just so exhilarating when I see the kiddos so involved and experiencing the joy of music. This program is exceptional and I feel so blessed to have found it! Mr. Rob gets it. I could go on and on…but my preschoolers are about to arrive. Kudos to all the people involved in making Preschool Prodigies what it is! I am one thrilled and appreciative member of this community!

Nick, K-12 Music Teacher

“First of all, this curriculum is really effective. So far my classes are more fun, more satisfying, and I’m getting every child engaged. The students are singing very close to pitch and using fairly good singing voices. The videos are very helpful to me as a teacher because I can spend more time watching the students for accuracy instead of the normal routine.”

Michael Berryhill

This is such a great tool for the classroom! My elementary kids are engaged and really grasping the concept of actually reading music through PsP. Keep it up and I can’t wait to see what y’all have for the future.

Different Series for Different Ages, Levels & Instruments

Inside Prodigies, you’ll discover over 300 video music lessons. The lessons are fun, interactive and extremely effective, and we’re always adding new lessons to keep your musical journey alive and fresh!

Playtime Prodigies

Our newest mini-series is designed to prime toddlers (ages 1-3) for the lessons in Preschool Prodigies. These videos are among our easiest and are fun for babies and toddlers. The don’t require an instrument as they focus mostly on the hand-signs, simple rhythm with tapping and clapping, movement and singing call & response songs!

Preschool Prodigies

Our flagship program for Preschoolers (ages 3-6) focuses on playing the C Major Deskbells, singing with the C Major Solfege (Curwen) hand-signs, as well as singing about colors, letters, numbers and more. It’s designed to span 1-2 years of preschool music education (depending on your speed) and is best completed sometime between ages 3-6.

PsP Melodies

A mini-series focused on singing with the Solfege hand signs. These short exercises work as a bridge from Preschool Prodigies into Primary Prodigies, or as instrument free videos when you need them. Great for kids of all ages and they’re easy to use without any prep or detailed follow up.

Primary Prodigies

Designed for the elementary school kids (ages 6-12), Primary Prodigies focuses on reading properly notated music in the treble clef, reading standard rhythmic notation, understanding chords and basic chord analysis, intervals, and much more. Each section of Primary is more robust than any other Prodigies section or series in that each section contains 1 or more lessons, 1 or more song videos, 1 or more performance tracks, and often an analysis lessons, listening game and more.

Performance Prodigies

Designed for people of all ages, Performance Prodigies presents the same songs and challenges from Preschool Prodigies and Primary Prodigies, but in an Orff ensemble type format. This means you can choose to play the bells, sing with the hand-signs, accompany with chords, focus on the lyrics, or even play some percussion! If you’re working with multiple kids, you can split up and rotate through the different instruments to both practice and perform the songs from Preschool & Primary Prodigies.

Holiday Prodigies

Celebrating the holidays? Holiday Prodigies takes you through 20 songs, from classic Christmas Carols to secular favorites, and you can find all of the songs in our Holiday Prodigies Songbook. The scope and difficulty of this Holiday themed mini-series is similar to Primary Prodigies and works great for kids and adults alike to celebrate the holidays!

Recorder Prodigies

A colorful introduction to the recorder that will help your kids get ahead in music class while also being kind to your ears (we promise!). The series is meant for kids ages 8 and up and has a heavy emphasis on G Major songs, similar to many popular Recorder methods. Each Medieval-themed section teaches your kids a few notes and a few techniques before moving into playing songs with those notes and techniques, all in conjunction with our Recorder Prodigies Book.

Rhythm Lessons

If you want some Sweet Beets, have no fear… we’ve got ’em! Our rhythm lessons make keeping a beat, learning to read rhythms and understanding the math behind rhythm fun, engaging and easy. Our rhythm lessons are scattered throughout the series but also grouped together for those times when you just gotta bang on your drum all day.

Listening Comprehension

From individual notes, to chord listening exercises and more, Prodigies places a heavy emphasis on ear-training from the very beginning of the program. Earlier lessons focus on pitch development through “meaningful play with individual notes” and a lot of Fixed Do and C Major activities. As we progress into Primary Prodigies, we start dealing with intervals and more relative pitch listening games.

News, Tutorials, FAQs & Training

Prodigies is also filled with parent and teacher training videos that more generally cover how to teach the hand-signs, how to teach rhythm, how we think about pitch training, how to use each series and more. A lot of our early adopters, even parents with zero musical background, have started teaching group classes after using the program with their kids for a year or two.

Benefits of a Music Education

The Lifelong Benefits of Playing a Musical Instrument

Did you know that playing a musical instrument is like doing a full body workout for your brain?

It’s a life-long skill that promotes cognitive, social and emotional development while bringing fun and joy to the whole family! And with the Prodigies Playground, you’ll be on your way in no-time.

The Benefits of “Meaningful Play with Pitch”

Ever wonder what it takes to give children a knack for music? It’s really all about meaningful play with individual music notes, during the critical years of auditory development.

And while that might sound fancy, it’s a simple method thats highly effective & super easy for non-musicians to teach to their kids.

Learn more about “Meaningful Play with Pitch” in our free eBook, Raising a Young Musician.

Perfect Pitch in Action!

Even if you have no musical background, you can give your kids the music education of a lifetime with Prodigies!

Check out our good buddy Boo, who has one amazing musical ear! Boo started using Prodigies at age 2 and developed his sense of perfect pitch in a year and half. Results vary from child to child of course, but study after study shows that toddlers and preschoolers can develop their sense for absolute pitch much better than adults can.

Take a closer look at how Prodigies works...

Prodigies Videos & Apps

At it's core, Prodigies is a library of 400+ video music lessons that are available through a digital membership.

Once enrolled, you can stream all of our videos from our website's, Playground, from our website's Index, or from our iOS, tvOS, Android, Roku & fireTV apps.

You can even take the videos offline using our tablet and mobile apps (iOS & Android) or with MP4 downloads via our Pro Plus Membership!

The Bells

For lots of reasons, these colorful deskbells are the ideal starting instrument. They stay in tune, they are difficult to break and most importantly, they allow you to focus on a single (or a select few) musical notes at a time.

The colors of the bells make identifying musical notes easy which helps build confidence, increases enjoyment and predictability in the instrument, and as a result, helps develop a strong musical ear.

Plus, our Prodigies Deskbells are backed by a 2 year, 3 bell replacement policy! Bells are sold separately from books and memberships but you can shop our kits for bundled savings.

The Solfege Hand Signs

The Solfege (Curwen) hand signs give kids a kinesthetic action to associate with each musical note. This helps children focus on their singing and even helps develop absolute (perfect) pitch!

It also provides an instrument free way to practice with a vast majority of the videos inside of Prodigies!

The Workbooks

The video lessons are paired step-by-step with integrated workbooks and songsheets. The workbooks give children a chance to practice the songs at their own pace, guide students in writing their own songs, and reinforce cross curricular skills like patterning, writing, simple math and more.

The Songbooks

Our songbooks provide a concise collection of kid-friendly classics that are perfect for performances, learning new songs and practicing old favorites. While almost all of the songbook songs have corresponding videos, they are not directly integrated with the progression of the workbooks and are meant more as supplemental collections and kid-favorites.

Piano Friendly

Though Prodigies is designed around a set of colorful bells, the videos and curriculum can be easily used with a piano or any keyboard/mallet instrument. All it takes is some inexpensive color coded stickers and any piano is instantly Prodigies friendly. You can complete the curriculum once with the bells, and go back a second time through with the piano.

Boomwhacker Friendly

The color coding system we use matches the worlds most popular classroom instrument, Boomwhackers. Boomwhackers are great in a group setting where each kid gets 1 or 2 notes to play, or as a means of building a xylophone, but they're less ideal for one person, as they involve holding and striking the tube to play it, which makes it difficult to play more than 2-3 notes quickly.

Adjustable Playback Speed

If you're streaming videos on our website, you can control the Playback speed giving you more control of the difficulty and pacing of your lessons. This feature is currently only available on our web platform, but is coming to our mobile and TV platforms soon.
