“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 xylophones & Boomwhackers with much success!

Video lessons allow me to float around the room to correct students hand positions and provide one on one instruction where needed. I am able to provide better feed back & it is saving my voice. I ❤️ this program!”

Program Philosophy

Prodigies focuses on giving children meaningful play with the individual musical pitches during the critical period for auditory development.

EARLY EXPOSURE TO PITCH

Your kids will develop a strong tonal center while singing and hand-signing with Solfege, colors, note names & more

ERROR PROOF LEARNING

Our program is designed to be as easy as possible so that even without a trained music teacher, your kids will be guided toward musical success

BRAIN BASED VOCABULARY

We demystify music by applying motions, numbers, colors, hand-signs and group names to the musical notes

“My youngest son developed perfect pitch before he was age 4 by using Mr. Rob’s lessons! He is 5 now , and loves to point what notes his Dad is playing on the guitar.

When he can’t think of the name of a note he wants to hear, he says stuff like “Mom, I want the song that starts with a G Note! Prodigies music lessons are amazing!”

Your Kids Will…

Sing

Kids LOVE to sing, and Prodigies gives them the tools to understand the musical notes by having them sing the notes on different color, numbers & syllables

Hand-Sign

By combining Solfège (Do Re Mi) with easy to remember hand-signs, kids connect the abstract sounds of the musical notes to concrete & memorable motions

Play

By focusing on a variety of kid friendly instruments, Prodigies gets kids as young as 2 playing a musical instrument in a meaningful and pitch-centric way

Develop Performance, Composition & Improvisation Habits

Using colorful instruments and music makes it easy to get kids performing, composing and improvising in a very real way

Develop a Strong Sense of Pitch

By focusing on meaningful exposure to pitch during the critical period for auditory development, Prodigies delivers an early music program that makes the most of your child’s rapidly developing auditory centers

Develop a Strong Sense of Rhythm

Through echo songs, easy rhythmic dictations, and a common-sense approach that starts with Beet & Cherry (Prodigies), advances to Ta and Ti Ti (Kodaly), and up through standard rhythmic subdivisions (1e+a 2e+a)

“This is the most incredible thing! Jaime is 5, mostly non verbal…. she has never put more than 2 syllables of anything together unprompted.

I cried when she sang me Solfege and played her bells on the way to bed one night. She has been watching your video for about a month. Thank you for the magical thing that your program has done for her!

For Families

Even if you know very little about music, you’ll be able to give your kids an amazing musical head start (while probably learning a lot yourself!) Your kids will sing more in tune, learn an instrument & your home will come to life with music!

For Homeschoolers

Prodigies is easy to use with multiple kids and you only need one account! Plus, you can print as many worksheets & checklists as you need to show your work and take the videos further 

For Music Teachers

Music teachers love our focus on Solfege, Orff inspired instruments & Kodaly concepts. Experienced teachers will immediately understand the concepts, patterns & approaches we take allowing you to dive into group lesson plans, worksheets, performance prep & more. 

For Therapists & Adaptive Music

By being colorful, rhythmic & formatted for early readers, Prodigies makes music lessons more accessible than ever. We’ve seen non-verbal kids sing Solfege, play the bells and so much more and we’re always designing with adaptive music in mind.  

For Early Childhood Educators

Early Childhood Educators tend to be a sing-songy bunch, which makes them perfect Prodigies teachers. Plus, preschool children are in their critical period for auditory development which means you can have an exponpentially larger impact on a child’s long-term musical ear.

For District Admins & Studios

If you’re looking to roll out a colorful, approachable and effective music ed solution, we have group plans and bundles to help you implement Prodigies at scale. Plus, we’re developing a new LMS complete with distance learning features, reporting, student feedback & more.

“I think you’ll be pleased to know that every class my students ask me, “Do we get to watch crazy Mr. Roberto today?” They all love “crazy Mr. Roberto”, and they are all learning a lot of music and having a lot of fun doing it!

Thanks very much for making such great material available. And thank you for opening up some new teaching avenues for me. I’m 50 years old, I have a degree in music, and I’ve been teaching piano since I was 15, but this curriculum has made me a better teacher. Thank you.”

Practice & Learn with a Variety of Instruments

Learn multiple instruments with our colorful curriculum

Deskbells

The core curriculum focuses on bells that are colorful, easy & fun to play.

While they are ideal for beginners & children with special needs, they are also quality and expressive enough for mature players.

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.

Small Family Company

Prodigies is built and maintained by a small family company, so you’ll likely come to know Mr. Rob, Ms. Sam & Mr. Michael pretty quickly.

“I am so happy that I went through my education foundation in our town to get Prodigies for my special education classroom. My students started with the program in January and even though we move at our own pace through it the progress is amazing!

They have always enjoyed music and it is even therapeutic for some but unfortunately the mainstream class is just too challenging.

This program has brought their love of music into my classroom at an appropriate pace, it’s super engaging and they are learning so many skills. All my students have either increased their ability to follow a rhythm or have now learned to keep a rhythm, follow directions, wait to play which is huge and also control their hands.

My students look forward to the music period in our schedule and sing the cya later song ALL the time. They were beyond excited to watch and play the hello song for #worktogetherwednesday.

It has been life changing to find something so perfect for my students who tend to be left out. I am so grateful to have this program and see the joy it brings to my students!

Thank you for creating such amazing resources for a wide range of kiddos.”

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.
