Instruments To Use With Prodigies
Learn multiple instruments with our colorful curriculum
Voice + Hand-Signs
Prodigies combines singing Solfege (Do Re Mi etc) with simple hand-signs to make pitch development concrete, memorable & fun.
This way, you always have an instrument with you!
The hand-signs help to make the abstract idea of pitch more concrete and memorable.
Plus, by combining two hands with our voice, we’re activating multiple areas of the brain for more points of access to pitch.
Prodigies works wonderfully with Xylophones, Glockenspiels & other mallet percussion.
Mallets present more challenging alternative to the deskbells, which is good for kids ages 5+.
Add some colorful stickers for a more error-proof instrument.
You can also follow along with a piano, and we recommend color coding your keys with Chromanotes Stick Ons.
Note that Piano Prodigies IS NOT yet available, though the bell lessons are easily followed by piano as well.

What Our 2500+ Members Are Saying…
This is the greatest resource I have found in my 28 years as a music educator! The K-3rd graders love everything about “Mr. Rob videos!” I also use it at home with my teenage daughter with special needs and my two young grandsons (5 & 6 years old)!
Mike GreenMusic Teacher
We stumbled across this program on Facebook after I had become frustrated at the lack of music education in our area — we don’t even have any children’s choirs!
I knew I wanted to get a lifetime membership after just a few videos. The way this is set up is simply brilliant! My children picked up on it very quickly and are now leaps and bounds ahead of where I was at their age (and I actually grew up in the house of two music people!) They know the solfege and the notes well. The videos are delightful and effective. The workbooks are fun and help reinforce everything. We haven’t even gotten that far into the program. I am so excited about doing recorder, ukulele, and more!

My oldest (almost 5) LOVES this program. He asks to watch it constantly, and he’s learned a ton in just over 2 months. My youngest (18 mos) also absolutely loves playing with bells, tapping along to sweet beats, and laughs every time he sees the baby. THANK YOU! I’m very excited to get the kids interested in music so early in life.
Kelly Knight ChurbuckMom
Absolutely love this program!
I found Mr Rob on YouTube when I was looking for ideas for my ESE music class. I am teaching it for the first time. It turns out they LOVE it and so do my other classes when I show it. I teach Middle School Orchestra 6-8 and have incorporated lessons where needed to reinforce concepts. It makes learning music theory and singing so much fun!
Karen DillardMusic Teacher
I could go on for days about how wonderful PsP is! I use it to teach music in a special needs class setting, with my own young kids, and in one on one music lessons. It works for everybody! It is easy to facilitate and is excellent quality. It is fun and entertaining, but it truly teaches young kids how to make and appreciate music! It has also given me as a new music teacher confidence and guidelines to teach skills that build on each other and make sense.
Stephanie PowellAdaptive Music Teacher
This program has revitalized my 30 year teaching career! Bravo! My students are engaged and learning at a rapid rate. I use this program with my existing xylophone fleet and Boom Whackers with much success! Video lessons allow me to float around the room and correct students hand position and provide one on one instruction where needed. Older students also love the Recorder program. I am able to provide better feed back & it is saving my voice. ❤️this program!

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Prodigies?
Prodigies is a colorful music program for kids.
Whether you’re a parent at home with no musical background, or a music teacher with 20 years experience, Prodigies will help make teaching your kids music easier than ever.
Prodigies combines fun video lessons & songs with easy-to-play instruments (like bells, books, recorder & ukuleles).
What’s unique about Prodigies?
Most early music programs focus on movement, songs & life-skills learned through music.
Prodigies instead focuses on music theory, pitch training & playing a pitched instrument during your child’s critical period for auditory development.
We use colors, Solfege, numbers & hand-signs to make the musical notes accessible, memorable and fun.
By focusing on the language of music & music theory while kids are in this critical period for auditory development, Prodigies helps kids internalize the sound of the musical notes to make music almost second nature.
What skills will my child learn by using Prodigies?
As your kids progress through Prodigies, they will develop a variety of musical skills & talents.
- Pitch development through songs, games & activities about the musical notes
- Rhythmic development through fun call and response songs (like Sweet Beets)
- Listening & aural comprehension skills with “Name that Note” & other listening games
- Play their first instrument, either on the Deskbells, xylophone, piano, recorder or Ukulele
- Cross-curriculum skills like patterning, sequencing, early math & hand-writing
- Composition skills using composition activities
In addition to the above skills, learning music will help develop your child’s creativity, problem solving skills, perseverance & more.
Learning a musical instrument helps unlock the recipe for learning ALL skills and with Prodigies, learning music is fun & easy (even for parents and kids with no prior musical experience).
What ages is Prodigies designed for?
Most Prodigies materials are designed for kids ages 3-12, with different video series & course progressions covering different difficulties.
Our Playtime material is expanding the curriculum to infants & toddlers, and our Recorder, Ukulele & Bell Curriculum is progressing into more difficult concepts like intervals, harmonies & roman numeral analysis.
With your video membership, you unlock ALL of the videos for all of the different ages, which makes it easy to get started.
You can can learn more about the scope & sequence in the infographic below.
How does Prodigies work?
Prodigies videos are available to stream on ProdigiesMusic.com and through our app, Prodigies Music Lessons (AppleTV, Roku, fireTV, iOS, Android, Chromecast).
We recommend a colorful set of Deskbells to follow along, which are durable & easy to play.
Don’t have any deskbells? That’s okay!
You can also follow along with the hand-signs or with mallet instruments, a piano, or our free Prodigies Bells app.
Many of the lessons don’t even require an instrument, as we’re often focused singing, hand-signing, tapping, clapping, or listening to musical quizzes.
You can simply get out your bells and play along with the videos, or you can take things further with songbooks, workbooks, lesson plans & group activities. Teachers can even enroll students at a discounted price to enhance their studio offerings & student engagement.
