This is where we answer the most common questions anyone might have.....for people of all ages with or without learning or life's difficulties or disabilities. Well we will try anyway.
What’s your reason for doing this?
The Dynamite Dyslexic Writes - It's personal for me after a lifetime of frustration and music failure. I don't want others to have 50 years of feeling unable to learn or play music, And now I know too how much a difference it makes with health and wellbeing and educational ability too. The team feel the same! We will either help one at a time - the 'Starfish Story' of the little boy who was throwing one back amongst millions washed up. Asked why bother he said "It makes a difference to that one!" Or if it works and we get help - then we hope EVERYONE of every age can benefit. That's our MISSION - to help as many people as we can.
Can I join MuseLEXic club for free?
Yes, there are things you can find here on the MuseLEXic Club site. And when we get going there will be trial Lessons for free too. The rest we need to cover our costs and invest more in helping more people.
It's gone past the Patent development and beta testing on friends and family to putting together a full 'Outcomes' test. We aere hoping to work with Educate London with EU funding for this. Fingers crossed.
What's the Difference between The MusLEXic.club and MusLEXic.com?
Well, it's all about WHO is learning - the student as in virtually every case who is taught by a teacher - or in our case the person who is learning first is the Music Mentor. And that doesn't mean the music teacher it means everybody who can and should help everybody else in their circle of friends and family to benefit from the health, wellbeing, work and educational benefits of music - for all ages, all abilities all the time! So our Music Mentors learn TWO things. To know how to be a Mentor and to know enough Music and Motivation theory and practice to help what we call the 'mentees'.
What are the three types of Mentors?
We think there are three ways to best help Mentors to 'do their best' to be Mentors - depending on who they are mentoring and why. So here are the three types;
- Mummy Mentors (and Daddy and Family and Friends too!) who help their kids out of school or with 'home schooling' - with ALL of the 3D's - Everyone with Learning Style Differences as well as the 20% with Learning Difficulties and Life's Disabilities
- Major Mentors who help older kids and adults of all ages who have not necessarily had music training but who want to help those they know and the community with or without difficulties. And this can include teachers who do NOT teach music but who can encourage people to learn as it helps EVERY aspect of learning
- Maestro Mentors who are our music teachers, players, writers and trained experts who can learn about the 3D's that has simply not been looked at by the vast majority of people - even those who teach. It's a such a new subject that we have only just discovered Dysmusia! Who knows about that???
