Create music is something natural for the human being. Specifically, we see that the child seeks to produce all kinds of sounds, with his vocal cords, with his tongue, with his hands and hitting everything around him.
From this natural impulse of the child to the music we know, the Western score, which is created with certain rules and has undergone an evolution over the centuries, there is a step that can only be saved with a careful pedagogy and a deep knowledge of how a child's mind works.
From the child to the score versus from the score to the child.
We must bear in mind that the child starts from his own place from which he will travel to the knowledge of what we want to show him. In the awarded Tintarantín method I have very much in mind what is the place from which the child starts so the software shows a score that he can understand from the beginning, with few or none explanations.
Colours and well known shapes
The awarded Tintarantín method starts from what the child already knows: colors and some familiar shapes: a kitten, a king with a crown, a chair, a sun (note: in the spanish version).
The black and white keyboard is filled with color with stickers. Each color is a note of the scale.
At first only the stickers that the child will need for each score are placed. This is how we present each note of the keyboard little by little. It is impossible to get lost!
For placing hands over the keyboard at first we use the fingers most used by the child: the index fingers, with which he feels comfortable. In the first lessons we progressively include the middle finger and the thumb.
The whole system of the awarded TinTarantin method has been designed so that the child does not feel that there is something difficult. The scores are subtly graduated so that they flow from the first to the last one with little effort, incorporating little by little all the fingers of the hand and end up playing with both hands at the same time independently.
Lyrics with meaning
The lyrics of the songs have their association with the name of the notes. Currently only available in spanish. In developing the german, italian and english version of the lyrics. The awarded TinTaranTin method is unique. There is no other method that links the notes with the lyrics.This way children learn the notes and their names very easy and with no effort.
The sum of a quality teacher and advanced technology produces magic in the field of children's learning.

This technology is the end of a process. After twenty years of teaching young children I have developed Tintarantín, the awarded software that increases motivation, focuses the attention of the child and therefore improves its memory. Success is inevitable.
An application can not teach music on its own. Music is an artistic language that also conveys feelings and transmits emotions. Only a capable and talented teacher can inspire in the child this love for music. However, a teacher without the Tintarantín software will have more difficulties when it comes to motivating and getting the child's attention.
Tintarantín is definitely a great support for the teacher and an extra motivation for the student.
