This was the fifth year we have attended the Kansas Music Educators Association (KMEA) In-Service Workshop (annual conference) and the first year of our full-out launch of the classroom MerrieNan Melodies (MNM) program. Many wonderful music educators from the state of Kansas stopped by our booth and learned about the unique opportunity that MNM offers to kids. Music teachers can joyfully and easily teach their K-4 (and beyond) students how to read music with keyboards. We had some powerful data to share from the pilot program in Concordia and teachers responded positively. We are passionate about getting this method out to kids!

Looking back on when my six year old started lessons last year it is amazing at what has been accomplished. She can read music before she can read books, she relates to all aspects of the teaching thru colors, numbers, and letters. The games and colors keep it interesting and fresh for little legs that cannot keep still. I can tell my daughter is so proud of herself and enjoys playing. She knows what the notes are called, plays both hands, and even some chords, and she is understanding rhythm. What a wonderful music method; I wish it was available when I took lessons as I learned by memory.Cheryl Kurtz
