About the innovation

Three Global Languages - Into One!

What we do at www.emojischoolofmusic.com

1,000 years of Traditional Notation System and we're in the 21st Century where little has changed - especially with SEN-D Music Education! We've put the 3 Global and universally loved languages of music, colour and Emojis together to create the world's first C21st SEN-D and EVERYBODY FRIENDLY music education and playing system.

The system is based on what we (and our Parrot Emoji!) calls 'Poly-SENsory Learning. With our Emoji Mini-Mentors like Mr. Music Memory, Mr Muscle Memory, Miss Buzy B and Spelling Buzzy Bee we're here to make music learning F.A.S.T! That's Fun Accessible Simple Teachable!

Why we do it? Kevin M Thomson (The Dynamic Dyslexic) Says.. After a lifetime of being unable to read music due to 'Visual Dyslexia' (Meares/Irlens Syndrome) with a dash of ADHD and Dyscalculia I started to create a system to help me learn and read music. 4 years later, a UK Patent Application, thousands of hours of development and a team of people with - and without - SEN-D, our aim is to help NOT just the world of SEN-D but everyone. We call it Triple A learning - For All Ages - All Abilities - All Aptitudes.

Was I alone in my learning and visual difficulites - and just finding music learning too difficult anyway? I had to find out. So I worked with my friends at YouGov to find out if Music Education was one of the UK Government Office for Science '5 Ways to Wellbeing' - based on global research by nef - the New Economics Foundation. We created the YouGov UK Benchmark for Music Wellbeing - Keep Learning.    

Not only was I not alone when it comes to learning difficulties I was far from alone amongst over 90% of un-happy music learners. 

So, that's why my own and our team's passion is for helping others - way beyond helping me to play more than 3 chords! The average age of giving up music as a child  (like me, like my wife and Editor-in-Chief Sally - Dot Dyscalculia!) is 11 to 12 years old. That's why our Mission is 'We'd like to teach the world to play - everyone, every age, every ability, ever aptitude!' 

Oh! And we do it because it is such FUN!
