An Interview With Hellene Hiner - Espie Estrella, About.com

An Interview With Hellene Hiner... My advice to the parents would be to take music education seriously. Be present at your child's piano lessons, get involved and see if the child is making progress and being happy. If not, never hesitate to look for another teacher! Many people quit piano lessons if anything goes wrong from the start. It is a very bad idea. Music literacy is a life lasting skill. If your children is musically illiterate, they are not enjoying life to the follest, in my opinion...

Piano-playing pupils picked up skills using a computer - June 7th, 2005

By HELEN ERIKSEN, Chronicle Correspondent

Elementary to continue pilot music program

Hutsell Elementary youngsters discovered that a computer can release their creative energies allowing them to learn to play the piano.

They used a program called Soft Mozart developed by Houston resident Hellene Hiner.

Using computers and electronic keyboards, pupils in grades K-5 built musical skills during the half-year program. It will be offered a full year beginning in August.

The program had 23 pupils but can serve as many as 30, said teacher Lael Portwood.

Pupils were divided into two groups, and half attended Monday and Wednesday sessions and the other half received hourly instruction on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Soft Mozart, an interactive computer software program, encourages children to acquire music skills much like they gain fluency in language, according to Hiner, who boasts children as young as 3 can learn how to interpret sheet music using this method. The software program is structured to allow users to program virtually any song and then learn the notes.

By the end of the year, pupils were playing several pieces even though the program began only in January, Portwood said.

By connecting a keyboard with about 25 percent fewer keys than a traditional piano to a personal computer, participants learn to play piano. Color-coding the keys on the keyboard to correspond with the music notes shown on the computer monitor makes it more engaging for pupils, Hiner said.

"Children use colored pictures and flash cards to help them recognize and learn musical notes instantly," Hiner said.

Portwood believes young children can become bored with traditional teaching methods, and this program captures their attention and keeps them hooked. Because of the modern technology adept society, pupils are accustomed to using the computer as a learning tool, Portwood said.

The program is funded through a $100,000 21st Century Community Learning Center grant administered by the Harris County Department of Education.

"The grant is designed to provide opportunities for enrichment programs beyond the school day," said Keiko Davidson, the school's principal. "Schools with a significant underprivileged population can apply for these grants."

Hutsell qualified because more than 55 percent of its 850 pupils were enrolled in the free and reduced-cost lunch program.

Academic success

Hiner, who was born in the Ukraine and later moved to what is now St. Petersburg, Russia, before moving to the United States in 1993, said the program is sold over the Internet, but her main thrust is to get it into public schools.

Research shows that learning to read music and play an instrument can boost academic achievement in other areas, Hiner said.

"Sadly, in most public schools music and art are usually the first things eliminated when there are funding issues," she said.

Davidson shares Hiner's belief that instruction in fine arts is critical to a child's overall academic development. She said Hiner's revolutionary methods had a profound effect of her daughter's education. Davidson became impressed when Hiner taught her daughter, Carolyn, and was eager to try the music instruction method.

Carolyn Davidson, who just graduated third in her class at Mayde Creek High School, began piano lessons eight years ago with Hiner and has gained the mastery of one who has studied for 15 years, her mother said.

"All children should be given the opportunity for music instruction," Davidson said,

In 2002, Hiner developed and premiered the Soft Mozart piano teaching method along with partner Valeri Koukhtiev, who focused on creating the technology element of the program. It took about 25 years to fully develop and implement, Hiner said.

She doesn't see the program as a threat to the traditional way of teaching the piano but instead thinks music teachers will find it more productive.

"It's not just about being faster, it's about being thorough," Portwood said.

"Many parents don't realize there is a more affordable option for teaching the piano. In just a few months, students can play several songs." Hiner said.

She was inspired to develop Soft Mozart because of her initial failure as a music pupil. She found it difficult to understand the lessons and wound up frustrated and disinterested. It was only after her parents removed her from school that she discovered she had perfect pitch and the ability to name any chord or tone by ear.

Piano Teacher's Software Hits All the Right Notes - February 19, 2004

An article by Bill Breslin in Houston Chronicles, Thursday, February 19, 2004. http://ep.yimg.com/ca/Img/trans_1x1.gif

When Hellene Hiner was growing up in the Ukraine, a bad experience in music school inspired her to find a new way to teach music. Hiner said because she had difficulty understanding the music lessons, her teacher would scream at her, call her names and throw music sheets on the floor. So when she was 11, her parents took her out of music school.

"Out of nowhere, something special happened to me," Hiner said. "I started to hear the perfect pitch of every song. I don't know what happened, but it was like a blind person suddenly seeing."

She returned to music school at age 12 and graduated with honors at age 15. "When I graduated, I cried tears of happiness and bitterness," Hiner said. "Worldwide, music is taught like it was in the Middle Ages. It's hard to change the way people teach music because they are used to it. When I went to music college, I wanted to learn a new way to teach music."

So she created an extraordinary new method of music instruction called Soft Mozart, utilizing a software program with the same name.

"I compare my method of teaching music like the way children are taught to read," said Hiner, who lives in northwest Houston. "Children are assisted with pictures, colors, and sounds- not just black and white print. I apply all of their senses to music study."

"Music teachers today are teaching music utilizing the students' logical side of the brain," she said. "They begin by explaining the music, like defining the treble and bass clefs," she said.

Hiner's students start right off by playing the musical instrument and learn by playing music, she said. A keyboard is hooked up to a personal computer. Hiner, who said she gives private lessons to about 50 students, color codes the keys on the keyboard to correspond with the lines of music displayed on the computer monitor. The interactive software displays pictures and other graphics, all related to the music that helps the student along.

"I have students as young as 2-years-old," she said. "Children this young are capable of playing the keyboard with both hands - and they love it." She said playing the keyboard helps young children to develop their fine motor skills.

"People today don't use their hands as much as they did in the 18th and 19th centuries," Hiner said. "I relate the amount of hand use with intelligence." She said as people continue to use their hands less, the less intelligent they become.

Hiner said she thinks kids today have the same music literacy as people in the Middle Ages had reading literacy. "I think we need to teach children music, so they can express themselves musically and learn music as a language," she said.

Hiner was born in St. Petersburg, Russia, and moved to Ukraine about 4 years later. She had 16 years of music education in the Ukraine - seven years of music school, four years of music college and 5 years at a conservatory - and became a music scientist, music critic and pianist. During her early days in music school, Hiner had to engage in six to seven hours per week of rigorous training, attending a music school after regular school hours. "Children wanting to learn music had a long day," she said. "It was hard work. You couldn't go out and play with the other kids."

She moved to the Unites States in November 1993 to find more freedom in her pursuit of music. In the old Soviet Union, there was too much structure in music education and breaking rules was not encouraged, she said.

Her music technique was born 15 years ago, she said. When she began teaching 2-year-olds to play the keyboard, she thought she would get calls from educators as well as the government. But she received no calls.

"My goal is to bring my program to all of the public schools," she said. "Some of the children will be able to play 'Mary Had A Little Lamb' with both hands at the end of the first class, and some of them will play something more advanced." They will also be able to read treble and bass clefs, she said.

"Piano is easier to learn than any other instrument, and is even easier to learn than singing," Hiner said. "Some people can't sing. Everyone can play piano."

WB-39 News - October 11th, 2002

http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/doremifasoft/WB39.jpgIn October 11th, 2002, the Program was featuring in WB-39 News. Steve Simon, well known Houston reporter, got interested in the program and visited our school with his TV-crew. He had not only momentarily grasped advantages of new method but succeeded to pack main principles of it in his talented reportage.

Here are some extracts from this report:

WB-39-You know learning to play the piano may never be the same. A local entrepreneur has figured out a way to get kids to enjoy sitting in front of the keyboard. Can you believe it? As Steve Simon tells us in this week's WB Interactive, software makes it possible.

Steve Simon-This takes years of practice. It's hard work. But what would happen when you take some kids and let them think playing the piano is like playing a video-game? You get music. This is DoReMiFaSoft. The soft is for computer software that is helping little ones hit those big notes. Desire here is just four years old.

Hellen Hiner-It works really fast and really effective, like I have some ten years old, nine years old kids who in one lesson start to play with both hands several songs.

Steve Simon-Notice how the musical lines start out vertically. Gradually, the pictures are replaced by notes, and the musical lines go to that standard left to right.

Hellene Hiner-I want this program in public schools. I want children who has no money or low income but big talent to be exposed to the music.

 

Hellene Hiner had her first appearance on the Debra Duncan show (ABC, Houston) on April 10, 2000.

She went to Channel 13 a couple weeks before the show with the video tape of her 2 and 3 year old students playing piano. She was lucky that day to meet a well known T.V. journalist (and her hero), Marvin Zindler, who listened to her ideas with a great deal of curiosity and attention. Marvin Zindler was the one who took her to the supervising producer of the Debra Duncan show and advised demonstrating her teaching methods on live T.V.! The idea to teach a randomly selected child to play piano with two hands in twenty minutes during the show had been born.

Nobody knew how the experiment would turn out. After the crew had visited a school and saw the students, most of them became believers that something special can happen. The results surprised even them. Little 6 year old Ashley, who was picked out of the audience, confessed she had never taken piano lessons before. She was able to play the Hanon #1 exercise and Ludvig Bethoven's "Ode to Joy" with all ten fingers of both hands at the end of the show.

 

Music Teacher Strikes Chord with Theory for Teaching Tots - March 10th, 1997.

Business Journal published an article about Hellene Hiner's program:

"... Hiner's theory speculates that 100 percent of all babies are born with musical talent of some kind but that the talent is lost by the age of 5 or 6 if it is not developed..."
