- Kodaly, Suzuki, and Dalcroze Methods
The Kodaly Method's philosophy is that music education is most effective when started early and that everyone is capable of musical literacy through the use of folk and composed music of high artistic value.
Zoltan Kodaly was a Hungarian composer. His method follows a sequence with each lesson building on the last. Singing is stressed as the foundation for musicianship.
He begins with sight-reading, mastering basic rhythms, and learning pitch with a "hand-sign" method. The hand signs help children visualize the spatial relationship between notes. Hand-signs combined with solfege singing (do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti-do) aids in singing that is on-pitch. Kodaly is also known for a system of rhythmic syllables to teach steady beat, tempo, and meter.
Through these combined lessons, a student naturally progresses into a mastery of sight-reading and ear training.
-The Suzuki Method is an approach to music education that was introduced in Japan and later reached the United States during the 1960s. Japanese violinist Shinichi Suzuki modelled his method after a child's innate ability to learn their native language. He applied the basic principles of language acquisition to music learning and called his method the mother-tongue approach.
Through listening, repetition, memorization, building vocabulary—like language, music becomes part of the child. In this method, parental involvement is helpful to a child's success through motivation, encouragement, and support. This mirrors the same type of parental involvement that helps a child learn the fundamentals of their native language.
Parents often learn the instrument along with the child, acting as musical role models, and maintaining a positive learning atmosphere for the child to succeed.
Although this method was originally developed for the violin, it is now applicable to other instruments including the piano, flute, and guitar.
- The Dalcroze method, also known as Dalcroze Eurhythmics, is another approach used by educators to teach musical concepts. Emile Jaques-Dalcroze, a Swiss educator, developed the method to teach rhythm, structure, and musical expression through music and movement.
Eurhythmics begins with ear training, or solfege, to develop the inner musical ear. This differs from Kodaly’s use of solfege in that it is always combined with movement.
Another component of the method concerns improvisation, which helps students sharpen their spontaneous reactions and physical responses to music.
At the heart of the Dalcroze, philosophy is that people learn best when learning through multiple senses. Dalcroze believed that music should be taught through the tactile, kinesthetic, aural, and visual senses.

I’ve been studying Piano under the tutorage of Adrian for 18months. All I can say is that I never thought I could achieve what I have in that time without his guidance, teaching, manner knowledge and skill. I believe it is because he has integrity to the music and simply wants each individual to connect to their inner musician and he does this with patience and positivity. He is always flexible to my needs and supports me when I don’t believe enough in myself. I feel lucky to have him as a tutor and I think you will too.
I found Adrian to be very helpful and gives a lot of time and pasion for his teaching .
Adrian is a very compassionate, patient tutor who also brings entertainment and light to lessons. He’s very knowledgeable and talented and takes the time to help me improve in the areas I most need to progress. I highly recommend him.
Adrian is very kind and patient tutor I have ever met. His lessons are interesting and informative but not overwhelming. He sets the goals each lesson and you can realise how much you progress. Adrian is always ready to help and answers the questions. With him I became a great learner in the field of music which I did not expect from myself.
Adrian is a knowledgeable, energetic and fun teacher who imparts good techniques and at the same time instils a lifelong appreciation of music. He is extremely professional and responsive yet warm in his communication style. I would certainly recommend him to anyone who has always wanted to learn piano but never got around to it like myself. Better late than never. I am looking forward to and enjoying every lesson as my journey in this musical adventure embarks."
