Cats (Crotchets or Quarter notes) explained by Professor Marcello


Crotchets (Quarter notes)
The aim of this video is to explain the concept of crotchet or quarter note. This video will provide a children friendly introduction to this rhythmical figure that in other part of our programme will be also known as “cat”.


Clock (Pulse training)

In this video the child has to be prepared to follow the pulse of the music with a drum or tapping on the table or simply by clapping along. Pulse is usually confused with the rhythm of the textures or melodies within the music fragment. This will not occur in this case as the music has been specially designed to display a clear pulse.

How does our programme work?

Spend five minutes per day doing some of our exercises and give your children a boost in their music ability. This is a music training plan for children from 2 to 9 years old, although it can be also started before and after that age depending on the intellectual and physical maturity of the child. As a visitor you have free access to the first lesson of every course. Most courses consist of 16 lessons. After enrolling  you will have full access to the plans or course you have enrolled to. If your child is still not confident when practicing a specific lesson don\'t feel tempted to move on. If you do move on anyway, make sure you still practice the previous lessons in addition the new one. Don’t worry if you feel that you have been for too long on the same lesson. Every child has her own pace but relax, this programme works with every child in most of the cases.
