Let's Play Music Launches Online Platform for Children's Music Lessons

Prodigy Press Wire

Innovative music education program Let's Play Music has launched an online platform for its foundational music class for children from four to six years old. The platform will allow students that live far from a licensed Let's Play Music teacher to enroll in the three-year program that begins teaching music at a young age through play, incorporating music theory, piano technique, classical music, and ear training. Let's Play Music, which was founded by Shelle Soelberg in 1998, operates under the philosophy that, to be most effective, music education should begin as early as possible, typically at the ages of four or five, in live classrooms with around seven or eight students. Classes are usually conducted at a licensed teacher's private studio or in a commercial music studio. However, COVID pandemic restrictions prompted Let's Play Music to figure out alternative ways of teaching music. Let's Play Music also noticed demand for its results-based program coming from areas out of the reach of its around 450 licensed teachers across the US and Canada. According to Soelberg, these factors influenced the decision to bring the program online. Let's Play Music created videos of the entire three-year curriculum, composed of 30 weekly lessons per year, for a total of 90. These were designed as an interactive learning model for one child at home, with guidance from a parent or adult guardian, who live more than 30 miles from the nearest Let's Play Music teacher. Each video is 30 minutes long and is supplemented with a 15-minute live online call with a certified teacher, which ensures that the student is able to understand the concepts and absorb the skills correctly. The online program also includes all the needed learning materials in a kit that will be shipped to the student's residence for each semester. “While we believe that face-to-face classes are the best way to teach music, we realized that it's not always possible, especially with how big the US is. We're always looking to certify more teachers in the Let's Play Music method, and we want to make them accessible to every child. But, until that happens, we are offering the next best alternative by allowing children to access our program online,” Soelberg says. Let's Play Music's online classes are available only for its three-year flagship curriculum, but it also offers two other live programs for children of different ages. The Sound Beginnings program is for children four years old and below and a caregiver. It provides a solid preschool foundation for the main Let's Play Music program by using movement, instrument play, nursery rhymes, stories, ear training, singing, and solfege. For kids seven to eight years old who missed the window to start the Let's Play Music program, there is the Presto program, which adapts the main program for older children and compresses it to two years. According to Soelberg, graduates of the Let's Play Music and Presto programs are able to play the piano and can easily learn to play any other instrument. They also come out with a wide variety of musical skills and are able to compose their own pieces of music. She says that conventional music teaching programs have only 20% of students remaining after three years. Let's Play Music inverts this statistic, and it boasts an 80% completion rate for its three-year program. “Let's Play Music is unique because we aim to capture the music learning window – when the child's mind is most capable of absorbing musical concepts – and we actually do something with it. Unlike other young children's music programs, we implement sequential learning and intentionally build on previous concepts in a way that allows students to fully grasp and play music. It's a very ordered curriculum that guarantees results.” she says. Media contact Name:Shelle Soelberg Email: Release ID: 633473

ChatGPT’s Ethereum Price Prediction for June is $2,100, These Tokens Might Also Explode

Finance News

It's been an up-and-down week for Ethereum investors, with the token's price dropping by 4% before reversing from the $1,850 level. $ETH investors are now wondering where the token will go next – and ChatGPT has provided some insights that could prove invaluable. Alongside ChatGPT's thoughts on Ethereum, the model has highlighted several altcoins that could experience significant price swings in the latter half of 2023. ChatGPT Anticipates Return to $2,100 for $ETH At the time of writing, $ETH is hovering around the $1,880 level, having experienced significant volatility over the past day. The token is positioned just below the vital $1,900 level, where price was halted in its tracks on Monday. Ethereum has not consistently traded above this level since mid-April, when price soared past the $2,000 region for the first time in eight months. Unfortunately, this bullish momentum was short-lived, and the $ETH price has sunk to the current level. Fortunately for Ethereum bulls, ChatGPT is highly optimistic about the token's prospects for the short term. According to ChatGPT, $ETH could return to the $2,100 level by the end of the month. This would represent an 11% boost from today’s price. This optimistic forecast will be an encouraging sign for $ETH investors, who have seen the token struggle to maintain a consistent uptrend in recent weeks. Wall Street Memes Explosive Presale Sets Stage for Future Success Aside from Ethereum, ChatGPT is also bullish on several other cryptos – with Wall Street Memes ($WSM) being the one the model is most optimistic about. Wall Street Memes is a recently-launched presale cryptocurrency inspired by the super-popular WallStreetBets Reddit community, which has ingrained itself in social media meme culture. Although Wall Street Memes' presale only kicked off last Friday, it has already generated massive attention from retail traders, leading to over $2.7 million in investment. Investors have been eagerly buying $WSM, Wall Street Memes’ native token, due to the power of the project’s community – which is formed of over 1.1 million “degens." Per the Wall Street Memes whitepaper, the $WSM token will be used to give back to community members, allowing them to gain exposure to its future evolution and growth. The project is already seeing immense traction, with the Wall Street Memes Telegram channel growing exponentially over the past week as traders pile in to learn more about the development team’s ambitions. Due to these factors, ChatGPT expects the $WSM token to explode once listed on major exchanges in Q4 2023. According to ChatGPT, $WSM could reach $0.15 by the end of 2023 – 466% higher than the current presale price. Overall, the compelling combination of community engagement, early traction, and strong future potential positions $WSM as a lucrative investment opportunity for meme coin lovers worldwide. Visit Wall Street Memes Presale AI-Powered Crypto yPredict Expected to Rocket According to ChatGPT Another crypto that ChatGPT expects to rise in value is the AI-powered analytics platform yPredict ($YPRED). yPredict differs significantly from Wall Street Memes, since instead of being a community-driven meme coin, the project revolves around providing cutting-edge tools for crypto traders. This innovative platform is designed to address the challenges of predicting crypto market trends – and does so by offering traders access to data-driven insights that are usually reserved for institutional investors. As noted in yPredict’s whitepaper, the ecosystem will contain an array of analytical metrics alongside a unique predictive model marketplace. In this marketplace, AI experts can sell their predictive models, which retail traders can subscribe to using $YPRED – yPredict's native transactional token. $YPRED can also be used as an investment vehicle, allowing holders to benefit from the growth of the yPredict platform, which already has over 20,000 people on its waiting list. Naturally, this trailblazing setup has caught the interest of ChatGPT – with the model estimating that $YPRED tokens could reach a high of $0.30 by the end of 2023. This would be a 233% return for those who opted to invest during the current stage of yPredict’s presale. All in all, by offering a blend of futuristic AI technology and significant upside potential, $YPRED stands as an enticing opportunity for traders in the fast-paced crypto landscape. Visit yPredict Presale Ecoterra Inspires Eco-Friendly Investors & Continues to Hit Fundraising Milestones Lastly, ChatGPT has also made reference to Ecoterra ($ECOTERRA) as one of the new crypto projects that could be set for a successful end to 2023. Like Wall Street Memes and yPredict, Ecoterra is in its presale phase, which has now raised $4.6 million from early investors. Much of the buzz around Ecoterra is being caused by the project’s clear focus on promoting sustainability throughout the crypto market. Ecoterra's ecosystem includes a first-of-its-kind Recycle2Earn app, which has a rewards system that sees users earn $ECOTERRA tokens every time they recycle used materials. Moreover, Ecoterra’s whitepaper notes that the platform will also have a carbon offset marketplace that enables individuals and businesses to counterbalance their carbon emissions by purchasing verified carbon credits using $ECOTERRA. Ecoterra even aims to connect recyclers and businesses through the recycled materials marketplace, allowing companies to purchase used materials using cryptocurrency. The $ECOTERRA token is set to debut on exchanges later this year – and ChatGPT expects its launch to be a success. Per ChatGPT, $ECOTERRA could hit $0.03 by the end of the year, which is 252% higher than the current presale price. With the backing of ChatGPT, Ecoterra could emerge as a strong contender in the crypto space, riding the wave of environmental consciousness.
