Figurenotes Testimonials

My less able piano pupils are finding piano lessons much more joyful using stage 3 Figurenotes and I'm about to start using stage 1, 2 and 3 at primary school to teach recorder and keyboard.

Figurenotes will allow me to bring more structured learning to the groups and give the young people access to music theory/learning/playing that they haven't had before.

Janet Butterworth, Support Practitioner
Thank you and keep up your good work, as the Figurenotes system has had a major impact on my teaching and learning.
I had a pupil who could not read notation due to Dyslexia. She managed to get an A in higher music with piano as her second instrument. She is now in 2nd year of Teacher Training. It is a fabulous way to learn and is such a confidence builder.
Anne Lawrence – Piano Teacher
Excellent notation system to support all learners.
Maria Kelly
We are impressed with how easy it is to make music with a lot of different instruments
Lorena Sanchis
  Excellent! It has worked wonders and the pupils love being able to understand rhythms, as in the past they have 'forgotten how the tune goes' and, therefore, had no success at home.
Elaine Moffat
The Figurenotes notation system is very quickly understood by children (as in, by the end of the first lesson), and brings the practical advantages of a music notation system. This combination makes initial progress in terms of the musical result very fast. Nothing gets kids playing and learning tunes in the beginning like Figurenotes.
Tom Ashe – Favela Brass
Nothing translates as easily as Figurenotes. It is just so obvious that it works!
Lucinda Mackworth-Young – Pianist

Figurenotes, starting simply for my ASN pupils, is very relatable and doable. The fact that I can make my own unique music and resources, and so can my pupils, is so valuable. Really enjoyed the training day. Extremely valuable for my pupils

ASN Teacher

Great to see that there is a useful resource to compliment me or others in delivering REAL music lessons. Really useful to see how Figurenotes can start basic and develop to full musical writing and composition.

Chloe Douglas – Primary Teacher
It's the tool I've been looking for for a long time
Isobel Burnie – Music Teacher
I'm so impressed with Figurenotes. Such a simple concept and so effective
Thomas Frost – Music Teacher
I haven't come across anything that comes close to it for inclusivity
Morven McKerrell – Music Teacher
The software is great! It means we can do the songs they really want to learn
Mo Malcolm-Gourley – Glasgow
A really valuable technique. Needs more exposure!
Lee Reynolds – Glyndebourne Youth Opera Musical Director
Figurenotes is by far the best thing for pupils with additional support needs
Karl Macrae – Let’s Mac Music
Figurenotes is giving us the opportunity to involve all children in music
Annona Thornton – Music Teacher
Figurenotes has broken down a huge barrier for me to enable teaching and learning to progress

We were shown the skills to create lessons for all abilities. I'll be able to create arrangements and resources for all levels. The course leaders were great. Excellent delivery of the course.

A great day. Many thanks! Really useful to try different things and get new ways to approach introducing rhythm and pulse.

I gained a thorough understanding of the use of Figurenotes. I have encountered it before, but today I figures out how to use it more professionally. Also, it was great to learn to use the notation software - this will be very helpful in the future.

Lovely staff- very relaxed and experienced, and supportive all day. Great music making experience. Thank you very much.

Looking at ways to introduce simple music making to young people was really useful. The most valuable part of the day was getting the chance to play the instruments using Figurenotes and looking at composing.
