Hi, I’m Carol Anderson.
As a music teacher for over 30 years,
it has become evident to me that
I am not simply teaching music….
I am teaching a person how to learn,
at the same time,
Two-year old’s leave after one or two lessons reading rhythms and understanding where they are played on their instruments. Cross my heart!! I have seen it happen multiple times!
Join the Super hero mailing list to receive the videos.
Thank you for joining the Super Hero Newsletter. I’ll be sending video newsletters so be sure to watch for the emails.
Every Super Hero is unique.
Of course they are. We all know that.
But what does that really mean?
Simply by knowing more about yourself and how you learn you can’t help but start to race ahead of the crowd. Not that we are competing.
Superheroes don’t need to prove themselves.
They simply are who they are, and perform with their advanced ‘honed’ skills.
The qualities of every super hero:
1- Has a goal, a story, the big ‘Why’.
3- Has a Weakness
4- Secret Identity (alter ego)
5- Uses Gadgets
6- Is a Role Model
7- Is Intelligent
8- Has Special Powers
9- Wears a Costume
10- Earns respect
11- He Has a lair or “hideout”
How can you become a super hero?
Over the next few weeks,
I’ll be explaining the unique styles of learning and the special tools I have developed to help you learn surprisingly easily through the backdoor of your mind. This way we go around the ‘road blocks’ to learning that your mind has set up. It is almost like magic.
“The true test of intelligence
isn’t knowledge…it’s imagination”
Let’s work at
‘Igniting Sleeping Brains’ through music.
Sight-reading made easy –
The stems are the color of the string on which the note is played (great when shifting)
The circle is the color of the note the sharp or flat is moving toward.
Really amazing right?
What I’ve Got!!
I’ve developed a unique ‘back-door’ method of teaching, re-patterning, and igniting sleeping brains
What It Will Do for You!
It will help develop your brain…
Allow you to see how it feels to have fluid thinking.

Using color-coded notes I like to refer to as gum drop notes may seem like the quality and mystic of music theory is being made into child’s play and actually, it is. Whether an adult of 80 years old or child of two, when playing music with the color-coded notes, magic is happening and the walls that ‘music theory’ seems to create melt away. The relationship of notes to one another, the unique quality of each of the basic note tones and the various names they are referred to, not to mention embedding the ‘scale members’ as if members of a team are some of the many benefits of using the Scales Aren’t Just a Fish Thing sheet music and ten minute music theory games. Enjoy!
Scales Aren’t Just a Fish Thing is a back door method of working with the unique wiring and learning styles of each individual with the ultimate goal being to ignite sleeping brains.
It has taken many years of studying learning styles, how the brain works and music theory to come out on the other side with the “Ten Minute Music theory games” and “The Gum Drop Note Sheet Music and play-alongs”.
If you stick with me through this free ‘Super hero newsletter’ series, I think you might become, if nothing else, more sensitive to the fact that other people do not process information the way you think they do…or should.
