I am a piano teacher as well as a Social Worker.
I have a few Autistic Children learning music. I too found the traditional method does not work well for these children as beginners. They find the information overload trying to work out note name symbols as well as rhythm difficult. After this I start to work with knownsongs and nursery rhymes and write the note names in the corresponding color.

They use auditory memory, kinesthetic touch with colored texts to write the colored note names. Also by taking longer to absorb the concepts I can see this enhances the speed of learning as well as seeing them get a sense of achievement.

Somehow color unlocks greater understanding than traditional note learning methods for children with Autism. Great to hear of others using these techniques. Would love to hear of further research with using colored notes for note reading and learning techniques. Rating got it right!!! Your Email. I am at least 16 years of age.

There is a disadvantage lurking here though which I will get to in the next section! No bueno.
They color-code the notes and use painted fingernails to make sure the kids connect the right finger to the right note. But back to Taneda… A large part of their process for giving kids absolute pitch is keeping kids from making bad connections, ie playing the wrong note.

This helps children develop a stronger sense of pitch. Indeed with the individual musical bells ringing individual musical notes, you eventually get to know the bell as a tangible object that makes one specific sound.
Learning to read the Grand Staff can be hard. If you want your kids to be a professional 1st Chair Violinist, then making sure they are musically literate is a good idea.
Music For Everyone
To do this, you would want to progress away from color-coded notes or labeling the notes as fast possible and play lots of note guessing, flash card kind of games. There are several music literacy programs out there that largely on teaching kids how to read the grand staff. The solution is to take certain stickers off the piano and to not put the same stickers in every octave.
