Music is a magical ‘language’ which has the power to evoke and communicate deep feelings and provide great joy to all who play and listen. How many times have you been at a party or a concert, felt the joy music is giving and wished that you could be that person playing?
This ‘musical language’ is far easier to learn than spoken languages such as English, as it only contains 12 letters (translated by the DecPlay method into numbers) and the vast majority of songs in popular culture use only 7. If children were taught this musical language for one fraction of the time they are taught speech, our world would be full of fluent musicians. The problem is that very few children are taught the simple rules and patterns that make music easy to understand.
Classical music usually requires you to learn how to read ‘music scores’ (the dots on lines) BEFORE having fun playing music, which results in the vast majority of pupils giving up at an early stage. This course (provided that you PRACTISE) will enable you to enter this magical world within your first lesson and set you on a course of learning and enjoyment that can continue for the rest of your life.
DecPlay avoids the need to learn how to read traditional ‘music scores’ (which can take many months to master) and concentrates on the fastest way to get to the pleasure of playing, using a simple ‘numbers and colours’ system.
Once you have experienced the pleasure of playing music, some pupils might want to learn to read music scores and there are a huge numbers of courses available to do this. Some will find that the DecPlay method fulfils all their requirements and that they just want to learn more songs from the DecPlay library. Others may want to progress to the ‘ultimate’ form of playing – ‘Playing By Ear’ – where you can hear a song, work out the notes in your head and play it instantaneously (this DecPlay course is currently under development).
