THEODOR IS HERE TO HELP YOU!
MOVE mi MUSIC – A BRAND NEW APPLICATION FOR MUSIC TEACHERS
Move mi Music offers music teachers an effective way to develop young children’s musical skills in musical writing, reading and part-singing by providing useful tools to help improve inner hearing, musical memory, rhythmic and writing skills in a playful way.
The programme is child-centred and is used to create diverse experience-based lessons. Highly artistic images, textures and animations create an enriching experience designed to engage the modern student.
Using Move mi Music teachers can create gamified tasks and exercises for use in class or as homework, with built-in evaluation features allowing teachers to monitor overall progress, and provide individually customized exercises to suit the ongoing needs of each and every student in the class.
Using the built-in music editor you can create tasks and exercises for the following skills and areas:
- melodic ear training
- inner hearing training
- sense of tempo
- keeping tempo
- musical memory
- musical coordination
- relative solmization
- relationships between notes
With 20 different task types you can create as many exercises as your teaching goals require. The effectiveness of these proven musical tasks is guaranteed by the significant music pedagogical knowledge and experience stemming from the Hungarian school music education practice hallmarked by Zoltán Kodály and Jenő Ádám.
The main Move mi Music mascot is Theodor the anteater, who deftly sniffs up notes from the screen, gradually changing from a somewhat grumbling-puffing animal into a joyful sweetly singing creature. As grumbly children can easily identify with him, his presence helps transform singing together with the class into a genuine remarkable experience. Kodály’s first and foremost goal was for children to enjoy singing and pass on this love for music.
