For you teachers out there, we are creating several educational packages and curriculums that will help you and your kids rediscover the language of music through the language of color. Doing this elevates the artistic abilities of your students on a whole as well as sparks their interest in the arts.

We can basically all agree that the language of color plays a very powerful role in our relationship to the world around us. In our experience, it most certainly does with its connection to music. There are countless books, theories, examples and research on the use of color, and some tie in a connection to music. All of these are in support of the use of color to enhance and improve things such as memory and efficiency by simplifying complexity. Color can bring order to chaos by creating structure and sequential patterning. It can help you relax as well as to be part of an incredibly profound and enjoyable experience. In all, color helps us create a very rich and often taken for granted relationship with the world. Children understand the idea of building blocks very early on and this idea can be related to music notation.

In this way, very young children can then begin to read music and train their eyes to follow the vertical and horizontal elements of music, which are the fundamental principals of how music moves in time. As children grow and learn, Musical Colors Standard Notation can then substitute Musical Colors Building Block Notation. Imagine color-coded musical instruments and color coded sheet music and what would happen when used together. Well, we know what happens and we know how it happens! We end up making music together with color in a very short time. Color can improve the attention span of just about anyone in order to learn music.
