I’m wondering if anyone here has used Pfeiffe House Music? I would appreciate reviews. I am not musically inclined myself. I would most likely start at 2nd grade level but comments from any grade level would be helpful.
I used this for Kindergarten. The lessons were short and relatively enjoyable. Some my son liked better than others. It covered solfege (Do Re Mi…) and other basic music concepts like high and low, loud and soft, rythm. We didn’t always do the recommended activities, but did some. I didn’t like it well enough to continue with 1st grade, though. He didn’t always want to participate, and I added composer study this year, so we just enjoyed listening and learning a little about the composers. I’m considering a video piano course that I’d seen recommended here for next year – second grade.
Hope that helped some. It’s been over a year since I used it. But I could pull it out and look it over to refresh my memory on the details, if needed.
I’m looking into this for first grade. I am musically inclined, so I want to teach my children music using the so fa method. I need a good curriculum!! Would you recommend this one? Coastal carol, did you end up trying it?
I have K-2nd grade but have never used it. In fact, I would like to sell it, so if anyone is interested please pm me! I got it in high hopes, but realize that there are just too many other things I want my kids to do, so we never used it.
