Soft Mozart and money
The biggest problem with music education today is the dilemma of distributing financial resources. Each purchase – committing oneself to something. In the music world, more than 99.99% of the population commits itself in a financial way to the traditional music staff or to the many attempts to replace it with some other alternative.
A tiny percentage of people, who are familiar with my method, are the only mentors, bearers of new information. This revolutionary approach requires tremendous effort to introduce a new way of presenting good old musical notation.
By inertia, available resources continue to spent on the old concept, the already ancient derelict mill of fossilized musical notation. This is a wall that has to be chipped away, bit by bit, every day. Only a small handful of people are trying to break down this wall. Constant dripping wears away a stone, but there has to be a stream. One drop on its own, is more likely to evaporate, than knock anything down!
And the problem is that the many 'droplets' are struggling to survive, each one on their own. Instead of being united in a single stream, that is running in one direction and increasing as a result of the energy of the new people, 'the droplets' while waiting for the others, lose strength. The problem is that something new is always subject to doubts.* It is like the people who saw a car for the first time, often asked, when they looked under the hood, 'Is there a pair of horses hidden under there?' *Such doubts harm everyone.
Many people think that it is possible to use the Method and without having to invest either energy or money into it. No dire consequences with this scenario. However this is not so. Already nothing is happening with traditional notation! Destroying something new is so very simple.
How else can it be explained, that along with–Gentle Piano–the ideal learning technology in modern society, some are attempting to entwine into a single thread, some kind of paper version? Paper–is paper. It does not develop motor skills, it does not help us see sounds developing! You invest money in paper and ink, putting strenuous effort into something dead, useless. And you think in this way you are 'stretching your dollars?' By investing in the dead, you deprive the living. This is what happens!
After the musical notation of Guido ceased to be visual, it gradually became user-unfriendly for the majority of people. In order to somehow deal with the situation, the following approaches were thought up for general music teaching:
1. Lessons about music, choir singing and theory lessons.
2. Entertainment on the subject of music.
It couldn't help but be reflected in the wages of musicians: if you put on a semblance when teaching, society will put on a semblance when paying.
This is a huge waste of money and energy.
Lo and behold, my method appears on the world scene. Despite the fact that no one else invested any money in it, it started to work on its own, producing a sensation in far corners of the earth, truly effective teaching and training of children.
After looking at TV programs from different countries of the world it is difficult to believe, that the creator of the method is not living in luxury! As it's growth is just magnificent. Young preschool age children are receiving prizes at piano competitions, adults are playing difficult pieces after two months of lessons. It just fantastic! After all, if people pay for slow development with zero result, how much more should it cost for such training? That is how many think.
However all is not as it seems at first glance. Use your imagination. The Soft Mozart program is based on a DIFFERENT staff and came into existence in 2001. It is only 15 years old. Virtually the whole population of the world does not know that the method exists. Inertia–is a powerful thing. What does 1,000 years of inertia tell us?
A tiny new trickle has appeared, that has even, let's say, thousands of followers, but not yet a pleiad of outstanding pianists–composers–musicians, the little brook is trying to break through. In this situation many droplets evaporate, and do not flow into a common stream.
The creator is still alive and already knows that the old way is finished. For the maker, all those missiles, paper games, are only obstructing the way.
Another analogy comes to mind. A sprout is only just able to break through asphalt. Plants need light, they can get sick, they need water and air. Backward traditions also block out the sun, a dark forest of semi-fossilized trees surrounds you. And most importantly–this absorbs energy and does not release it. Of paramount concern is the uniting of the bubbling brooks and the preservation of every droplet. Imagine how important the vitality of each person is.
In effect, exactly the same thing happened with the invention of Guido of Arezzo! Before the creation of music notation, people just hummed the tune to each other. And then a man appeared who said that it was necessary to communicate directly with the music. However for that paper, quill and ink were required. There was a loud outcry, 'Why is this expenditure necessary?' Who needs it anyway? That is why Guido went through hell, reproach and persecution. He also had to overcome inertia.
Now that his invention has been canonized, a copied piece of paper cost nothing, it turns out, that Guido did not request paper and ink for personal gain! We have a lot to thank him for.
My method has fallen into the same predicament! It's true, it requires a computer, synthesizer, cord, and the cost of programmers, webmasters, designers, artists, intellectual property writers....So what is to be done now? Throw it all away and go back to what we had before? Does it matter if the children will suffer?
As in the times of Guido, many have another fear: the worry of being out of work. Should we be afraid? Experience from the past 14 years shows: leave children alone with the Music Staff and Gentle Piano–you will find out. The more children that have access to this stream, the more that want it. People's thirst for this source of positive energy is unquenchable.
So I warmly recommend that everyone connects the piano and the computer, downloads the Demo, checks out how it works and signs up for the program. And each time when the invoice arrives, be happy that Soft Mozart exists, that this little sprout has not been trampled on, that it is growing and becoming stronger. And each time, when you turn on the program and see the message, 'you have*** days left,' do not be quick to find fault with the author regarding the cost. When out-laying on something derelict, obsolete, you always lose. On the other hand, with my program you are investing. It grows together with you. Each payment means progress, a step towards a more successful future for every child.
My method–is just the right direction in which to channel financial and energy flow. A win-win result./You will never regret it.
