Doremi Teach Music for Doremi Members

Helen Russell

When I started teaching music I was CLUELESS how to pass my skills and knowledge to my students. 

Even after attending courses I was overwhelmed. I still had an uphill climb to put together a coherent and progressive curriculum. 

That’s why Doremi Teach Music’s Primary Kodály Curriculum was born.

I’ve spent years developing and refining my progressive and effective curriculum and now I’m saving you the time and tears by sharing it. Starting with that first year working with the youngest new musicians age 4 and up.
