Welcome To Chance To Be The Awesome Amazing ABLE New Musical YOU! From The Dynamite Dyslexic 3D's Learning Team
We're Passionate about helping EVERY Aptitude, EVERY Age and EVERY Ability to learn, love, laugh and share in the JOY of music making. We call it The TRIPLE A ACCESSIBILITY of Instant Inclusivity For All - Aptitude Age Ability - with or without learning difficulties or life's difficulties disabilities!
We're Obsessive about bringing the POWER of music learning, playing, singing, reading, writing, teaching, sharing to EVERYONE With the World Leading (UK Patent Pending) DOUBLE WHAMMY WHOLE BRAIN & BODY Way Of Wellbeing Through Music. That's a WOW!
We're Challenging The Statues Quo. How? Three Ways....1. Re-imagining Music Learning with the 7 MusLEXica Learning Q & A's we asked ourselves 2. Overcoming The 7 Music Learning unABLES that we face as well. 3. Delivering The 7 COLOURS of Multi-Memory Emoji-Go! Music Making Magic.
Are we helping you to learn music for its own sake? NO! You get SO much more from even the smallest things you can do when you learn and play and share the joys of music. HOW?
So....What's The DOUBLE WHAMMY WHOLE BRAIN Way of Wellbeing WOW!???
The Double Whammy is that music is a 'Whole Multi-Modal Brain' and 'Whole Multi-Sensory Body' Activity working TOGETHER. With your 'Left Brain' - the maths and science part - and your 'Right Brain' - the art and imagination part of your mind - PLUS almost all your senses and body movement firing off together there is NOTHING like music to increase your Health, Wellbeing and also your Educational Ability and skills in life - at every stage of your life. There is a MASS of awesome research to prove it!
And..... What's The TRIPLE A ACCESSIBILITY of Instant Inclusivity???
In over 500 attempts and Patents to try to improve the (dull, difficult and daunting) 1,000 year old traditional system of music there is only one mention in one patent sentence of only one Learning Difficulty (dyslexia) and none of the other of Life's Visual Difficulites and Mental and Physical Disabilites; apart from the already established system of Braille Music. of Music Learning SOLUTIONS is.....zip!
Our World First approach is not just to look at the Health and Wellbeing power of music - for the 80% of people without learning or other difficutlties but to pioneer and deliver 21st Century solutions for the 'Triple A Accessibility of Inclusivity. What is the first Triple A? It's Aptitude - and YES we all have it! Aptitude is so much more than just your skill level, which is why we focus on so much more than your music learning skills throug our 7 Q & A's of MusLEXica Learning.

Green - The Colour of Nature. Show Me 'The 4 Multi-Modes 'n Memory Makers' That Make Me Remember - NATURALLY!
FOLKSY is me in the Green Cap. I say.. What makes me move and laugh and love the most? Music? No! Music Making!!!
Music is SO MUCH MORE than just an activity in its own right. It is SO MUCH MORE than something that you can do to feel better if you do it - well or not! It is SO MUCH MORE than a separate educational piece of learning that sits by itself and you don't need to bother with as it has no impact on anything else you do. WRONG!
O.L.L.I.E says......Think of this 95% of young students in the US went on to Higher Education who DID STUDY MUSIC - yes 95%. Say it again....95%!!!! Only half, yes only half that's only 50% who DID NOT STUDY MUSIC went on the Higher Education. WHY? Because learning music is SO MUCH MORE than a 'Right Brain' (think art) activity; or a 'Left Brain' (think maths and science) activity. It's a WHOLE BRAIN ACTIVITY. It's the only way to get EXTRA brain power as BOTH SIDES work together and INCREASE EVERYTHING! Well, not everything!
And it's SO MUCH MORE than even a 'Whole Brain' activity. It's a 'WHOLE BODY ACTIVITY'. You have to move, to touch, to feel, to hear and you swing and sway and cry and laugh and love (and hate sometimes) and learn to use your body to do it again and again and again. So we come to the first of The 4 Multi-Memory Makers;
- Multi-Modal Memory Making - Do the Hi-5! xTimes of Letters, Colours, Characters, Numbers & Numerals, Lines & Spaces. That's Multi-Modal Memory Making!
- Multi-Sensory Memory Making - Do the Hi-5! xTimes of See, Say & Sing, Touch & Feel, Play, Hear. That's Multi-Sensory Memory Making
- Muscle Memory Making - Teach my BODY to learn. Do the Hi-5! xTimes of both of the above with O.L.L.I.E and play and Over-Learn to start and your Fingers will 'know' what to do!
- Music Memory Making - Teach my MIND to learn. Do the Hi-5! xTimes of both of the above with J.O.L.L.I.E and PLAY! and enjoy Locked-In-Exercise and 'understanding' will follow.
Blue - The Colour of The Sky. Show Me Why The 3D's Affect ME!!!??? I DON'T Have ANY Difficulties or Disabilities! But we have ALL the UNIQUE DIFFERENCES there are to have!
Gypsy says....As we 'Wander Lonely Like A Cloud' (Wordsworth!) in the clear blue sky we may not have a care in the world. And whoever is teaching us music may think the same.
So why should you...or they think that you should have any trouble learning music? Because you are DIFFERENT! Who to? Everybody else! We all have our very own ways of learning as we have shown in the 4 Multi-Modes & Memory Makers above. Whether or not you have any Learning or other of what we call Life's Difficulties and Disabilities the WAY WE ALL LEARN IS DIFFERENT!
So...DIFFERENT is the first of our 3D's. And here's the thing about Difficulties and Disabilities. It's our 80/20 Rule. Get it RIGHT for the 20% who have Difficulties and Disabilities when it comes to how to present and deliver anything - but especially Music and you get it right for the 80% who don't. THAT'S 100% RIGHT!!!!
Indigo - Or is it the colour of being in the PINK? I would be if you show me the F.A.S.T! way to learn how JUST TWO KEYS will make me feel 'In the PINK! Why? So I can play Any Key, Anywhere, Anytime. Really???
Jazzy Says - Everybody thinks that JAZZ is SO COMPLICATED. Yep! It is! But the funny thing is it is lots of SIMPLE STEPS added together that make it so COOL! And there are ONLY TWO KEYS that you need to know in music to get you going Major and Minor. So I just want to show you how And there are ONLY TWO KEY NUMBERS that will keep you going - forever. What are they?
Well lets look at Major Keys first. They ALL have ONLY TWO KEY NUMBERS to get your Muscle Memory and your Music Memory going. That's 3/4 and 7/8. Funny that, but these simple ratios , fractions or better still SIMPLE FORMULA are all it takes. Because 3/4 of the way up a Scale you MUST play two notes 'stick' next to each other. In the Key of C - that's on the White Notes on the keyboard, its' the E and F that are STUCK RIGHT NEXT TO EACH OTHER! It's the same with 7/8....... The B and C are STUCK RIGHT NEXT TO EACH OTHER! So if you learn any scale as two halves of ..... 1 2 3/4 and .... 5 6 7/8 ... then that's it! And everything else will follow. Your Muscle Memory and Music Memory will follow your FINGERS!
What about the Minor Keys? Well, it's AMAZINGLY the same SIMPLE FORMULA . They ALL have the ONLY TWO KEY NUMBERS to get your Muscle Memory and your Music Memory going.That's 2/3 and 5/6. That's because the Minor key uses EXACTLY THE SAME NOTES AS THE MAJOR KEY - just three notes lower. So they have to be the same ones next to each other. Just this time the Minor Key like A Minor has B and C that are STUCK and E and F are STUCK. Here they come STUCK after the main root note of A.
Here's the thing. All the other ways of playing what are called MODES which we call MOODS use the SAME NOTES STUCK TOGETHER! You just start on a different 'root' note to give it a different feel. And we have made every Mode 'n Mood an Emoji Smiley to help you learn how and what to Play. The rest as they say...will be (your) HISTORY!
And our goal has been to make everything like 1234..... as SIMPLE as we can make it. And F.A.S.T! Fun Accessible Simple Teachable! Because even Music Teachers say how HARD it is!
Violet - The Colour Purple - Purple Rain - Purple Haze - Deep Purple - The Colour of Music Royalty! So show me why this Music thing is so important and what are you doing about it!
This is the last on the list of A to G! And it is THE MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL! Our MISSION. It's this.....'To help as many people as we can to learn and love and laugh with the PASSION for Music Learning, Playing, Singing, Writing, Joining, Making and Sharing." That's it!
Simple really - we are all passionate about making the world a better place by helping people explore, enjoy and entertain with the power of music. But you can't do that if you can't learn and play - or even just PLAY and have fun - no matter how 'good' you are! And we all have our own 3D Learning Differences, Difficulties and Disabilities. So we got together with The Dynamite Dyslexic aka Kevin M Thomson and whoooosh! Here it is. Well, not quite whooosh - 'cos it has taken a lot of hard work, effort, a Patent Aplication, thousands of trial and errors and a launch at the BETT Show to get here so far.
We want the rest to be history!!!
