What Teachers Are Saying...  

“In just 3 weeks our students are reading rhythms better than they did before.  I wish I would have known about this method a LONG time ago!”

“When I began working at a two-year college, I started teaching solfege, conducting, and Takadimi to my choruses in rehearsal.  I have found that Takadimi works extremely well as a ‘problem solver’ for working out complex passages.  It also makes the sightreading of simple rhythms a common-place occurrence for those with limited prior music-reading ability.”

“After observing a middle school classroom performing rhythms using Takadmi, I decided that I should take the time to learn the method myself.  As a theorist, I was skeptical as to how Takadimi would work in the college-level classroom.  However, after one semester of use, I was immediately impressed with the musicality of the system.  My students were able to master lengthy dictations and were expressive in their performance of rhythmic passages.  I teach both traditional and commercial aural skills, and I found this system to work well in both environments!”

“The Takadimi method is groundbreaking. Combining Takadimi with the Kodaly method has revolutionized my teaching and my students learning.”
