Welcome to RFM!
This music curriculum, for all ages, will help any music student build a solid foundation in the language of music. This foundation can be brought to any instrument and will surely shore up any musicians performance. Music is a language. Don't just follow the dots on a page, but actually learn music as what it is, a language. Any student who commits to this method will be well on their way to becoming a star musician in their own right. We have a saying here at RFM, If you know how it's made, you'll know how it's played.
In the beginning, students will embark on many different ways of memorizing the language that makes up the art of music, then come to understand what this language means, then taking this foundation to create new music to introduce to the world. As Phil Rogers studied how the music patriarch, Beethoven, taught his students, he realized that our general approach to teaching wasn't creating artists, but students that chased dots on the page or mimicked other creations without any understanding of how it was created, therefore limited musicians in their art to a few songs. Taking some insight from Bach and Beethoven, Phil has put together a method of learning music that is creating students that are excelling at music at an early age, because they are learning it as a language.
This method is great for:
-Kids studying a musicial instrument
-Great for a homeschool music class
-Adults wanting to improve their performance
-Students who want to compose any kind of music
-College students who want to shore up their understanding of music theory
-Anyone that just wants to start learning music
This is a comittment, but we encourage you on your journey and will be with you all the way.
