MUSIC AT HOME is the first online course that helps you to support your child's musical development with original songs and creative ideas. What make this course different is that it goes deeper in your understanding of music. By combining neurological and musical research, you will bring music to your family and it will become a special and fun way to bond with your child.
IS THIS YOU?
- Your child is always singing and dancing and music is a great passion that makes you feel good
- You want to share music with your child, but you're tired of the same nursery rhymes
- Music has always been something special in your life and you want to find a creative way to experience it with them
- You think that music doesn't need to be easy and simple to be appreciated by children
- You've always taken an interest in the neurological development of children in their early years
- You believe that musical learning supports your child's general development
PERHAPS THIS IS WHAT YOU'VE FOUND SO FAR?
- Lots of words in songs... so, where is the space for music?
- Poor musical variety
- Lots of gestures and signs to imitate but not a creative environment to move and express
- Endless repetitions of the same old songs (how many versions of "Twinkle twinkle little star" have you listened to?)
- Pre-recorded music that lacks depth, dynamics and emotion
I am happy to tell you that there is another way to make music with children! My approach is based on using rich and creative music where fun is at the core of the learning process.
- After 17 years of teaching, I believe that promoting rich and interesting music shouldn't compromise the fun and creative process of learning
- I create musical games and songs specifically designed to stimulate the cognitive and psycho-motor development of children
- Parental participation is fundamental to grow children's passion for music
- Using non-verbal and instrumental music enriches the child's musical vocabulary
- Encouraging improvisation and individual exploration increases children's creativity

WHY DID I CREATE THIS COURSE?
WHY MY APPROACH IS UNIQUE?
At this point, you probably will have understood that my approach is not a usual one. In my classes, children's musical creativity is the main focus for me. I take inspiration from my students' ideas to create engaging original songs and new music games.
I've studied and researched the Music Learning Theory of Gordon for years, and all over Europe helped thousands of children to develop their musicality in a fun and positive way.
WHAT CAN YOU FIND IN THIS COURSE?
- Interactive videos with five songs per week
- Colourful instruments that come from all over the world
- A mix of original and world traditional music
- Tips and suggestions to share music with your child
- A new music playlist every week
- Latest research on early years music and neurology
- A fun quiz for you
This course is designed to introduce a new rich musical tapestry into your household that is often found missing from popular children’s music found online or on TV. My focus is on musical elements such as keys and modes, odd and interesting time signatures, weird and wonderful instruments and, very importantly, an emphasis on non verbal music.
This course is a musical journey for both you and your child. I will encourage you with suggestions, tips and additional literature to help deepen this experience.
AFTER THIS COURSE
By the end, your child will have experienced a varied musical vocabulary and you will be able to observe them singing and creating music around your house. You will see their creativity, confidence and expression blossom thanks to the rich musical language that you brought into your home!
By singing up to our online school you will also get full access also to our 8-week music and language course First Steps Around The World.
"I'm a music educator and music therapist. I am passionate about the importance of introducing music early in your child’s development both as an educative tool as well as an expressive outlet."
Tiziana, creator of MUSIC AT HOME
"The lessons are amazing! We just watched it 3 times because Denis kept asking for more. Thank you so much for what you do. I couldn’t imagine that it was possible to create a music lesson of such high quality on an online platform. Thanks"
“By far the best music class for my little one. Tiziana is a very inspirational teacher, very dedicated in what she does, highly informed in music and psychology, but most importantly with a great love and passion to teach children. Her love is evident. My little one can’t wait to watch her class every week."
Who is this course for?
Maybe you're a parent who’s tired of the same old nursery rhymes and tv songs?
Perhaps you want your children to have a better musical experience than the one you had?
Or you're a teacher that’s looking for new inspiration for your classes?
How many times can I watch the videos? As many times as you prefer! The course it will always be available for you here on Teachable.
Can I watch the course on my TV? Yes, if you have a Smart TV you can access the course on Teachable from there and if you don't you can use a laptop connector such as an HDMI cable.
I think of myself as being un-musical. Will I still be able to support my child with this course? Absolutely yes! Nobody is completely un-musical because music learning never stops so you're still in time to develop new skills. Also, listening and sharing the experience with your child is the most important thing for them.
Why is a lot of the music in the course without lyrics? It may seem at first that removing lyrics from songs is counter-intuitive. However, research has proven that songs with no words allow your child to focus on developing the other language that they are listening to, the language of music!
Is there an expiry date to watch the videos? No, the course it will always be available for you here on Teachable.
Why predominantly non-verbal videos? I strongly believe in creating a space of silence after every song to allow a moment for a child to process and respond to the music… but that moment is not empty! It’s actually full of the sounds that children have just listened to and that are resonating in their minds. It’s actually in this moment that they are developing their internal musical listening and comprehension (called by Edwin Gordon Audiation).
