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!

The students and I truly enjoyed your presentation and are impressed by your delightful and creative teaching tools. Our students are still talking about your materials and are eager to learn about the kit.
I visit China often. I have witnessed many 3-year-old beginners learning by rote who cannot learn pieces independently even when they are able to play at the intermediate level. Reading is the barrier. The MNM approach for sure can help. “Learning to read by writing,” color-coded system, and the “name game” are very attractive to young beginners. I sincerely applaud your creative minds!Xiaoli Ding
