MusicStart® Testimonials

"The first semester we ran MusicStart®, I was amazed at the response. Parents were coming into the office and saying how cool and innovative it looked."

Karen Yucht, director
Teaneck Community Education Center (Teaneck, NJ)

"The MusicStart® Learning System aims to keep each individual student challenged at just the appropriate level — not an easy feat in a classroom setting."

Shelly Pasnik, arts education researcher (New York City)

"My daughter is taking a class at PS 372 in Brooklyn. After just one lesson, she is already playing Mary Had a Little Lamb and Jingle Bells. What a great system you have come up with! She loves playing it. It's the first thing she grabs when she gets up in the morning."

Marianne Itak, MusicStart® parent (via email 10/16/09)

"Finally, an instrument I can play."

Andrew, MusicStart® student

"After just 6 MusicStart® sessions, I heard my 5 year old son playing "Old MacDonald" on our piano without using sheet music."

Mrs. Ahn, MusicStart® parent (who attended class with her son)

"I was very impressed with Ethan Fiks' MusicStart® prototype. He examines the age-old problem of teaching children the nuts and bolts of music and comes up with a fresh and innovative solution, which will surely help speed up the learning process. He sets their imagination free without compromising any of the time-honored traditions of musical notation."
