Hi deardear07,

My 4yo gal is currently in JMC. In class they sing solfege, sing songs (from their textbook), play on electone. Till date, abt 1 and a half mths, they r at "fa" note. learn how to read and play, from "Do".

Quite interesting.

I am not an expert on this but I think one needs to differentiate between "methodology/philosophy" and "program".

"methodology/philosophy" would be Kodaly, Orff, Suzuki etc.
"program" would be Yamaha, Kindermusik, Suzuki etc.

Each method has their philosophy so good/bad does not apply here.

Program integrates different methodology into structured packages, so whether a program is good/bad depends on:
- how it is implemented
- quality of the teacher
- your expectation
- your kids preference

If you believe it is important for your kid to learn an instrument young, then, probably go for suzuki. Note that for a proper suzuki program, parents involvement is expected.

If you are looking for music appreciation, maybe kindermusik is better.

Yamaha maybe something in between?
