Anne-Sophie Morel, an experienced musician and teacher, was inspired by her 2 year old son to create The Musical Spider™ method. She wanted to instill in him an early love for music and teach him to play the piano in a fun and simple way.
Recognition of colours is one of the first milestones in child development, therefore it made sense to Anne-Sophie to create a colour-coded piano system. So The Musical Spider™ came to life.
The fun and unique method comprises of the 9 Musical Spiders, each portraying a different colour and look for the toddler to easily differentiate.
The idea of using the spider graphic was to visually encourage the child to imitate the spider with their hands – the 10 digits, curvy – like the spider legs, with one colour for each finger, and a corresponding colour on the keyboard.
The Musical Spider™ Method is tried and tested and the results have been extraordinary.
