Rule of Thumb is Ear Training. Students who can sing can very easily listen to music phrases and try them on an Instrument.

Methodology

Teach Music scales in tetrachords. Help students find difficult areas of fingering in various combinations of 4 fingers. Use the difficult ones for regular warm ups on Guitar. Students are encouraged to sing what the play on the Guitar or Organ and try listening to song portions in specific keys and write down the score themselves. Make them listen to ensemble singing and note down the parts separately. Learning to write music scores and sight reading are emphasized in easy to understand methods.

Background

Have trained large 100 member choirs for special liturgical functions. Have rearranged traditional Songs for 4-parts singing. My Gurus are Famous Malayalam composers Jerry Amaldev, Rex Isaacs and late K. V. Job. Have authored two books on Music focussing European Musicians as my readers.
