I know that may be a bold statement, but I’m 100% convinced that you will agree by the time you finish reading this page.
Hi, My Name is Chris Salter, creator of Piano Wizard and Music Wizard Group founder. I’ve spent most of my adult life studying and playing music. I have a double degree in Music and Linguistics, which is really interesting because it was during that process that I began to discover all the parallels with language and learning music.
Imagine if your kids could learn music like a native language and become fluent…
we could have a whole generation of Mozarts!
The discoveries that I uncovered through my life experiences starting as a frustrated “wanna-be” musician, who couldn’t even read music, led me here to you today. In college, by the grace of God, I found an amazing piano teacher at Southern Illinois University, in a “group piano” class.
This teacher Don Beattie (you’ll meet him shortly) had a phenomenal approach to teaching music. He pushed me to be fearless and I thrived under his instruction, eventually learning complex Bach and Chopin, which ultimately led to my degree.
This is significant because when I began all of this I couldn’t read music to save my own life! It appeared that I had no “talent” for music. Instructor after instructor, including the director of the school of music, told me to forget it! In fact, I failed my ear training class (twice) before I enrolled for my third time. My stubbornness and Don Beattie’s faith and guidance finally paid off.
I got a BA in music (and another in linguistics) from S.I.U. despite having never studied music until college. Pretty awesome especially for a guy who never had music lessons as a child! I went on to UCLA and began to study how other cultures taught music and it was when I traveled to Brazil to complete my Master’s Thesis that I discovered something really special! Children in Brazil don’t learn music through traditional music theory, they learn by watching, by mimicking the motions! It’s the opposite of how we teach here in the states, and yet almost everyone in Brazil can either play or sing along to their very complex and sophisticated Bossa Nova and Samba inspired songs.
What is Universal Music Literacy?… It is the belief that my mentor Don Beattie passed on to me, that music is a birthright; that anyone and everyone can partake, not just the “gifted.” And I have the proof to show you… But first, you’re probably asking: "Why is this important to me?"
It is important because if anyone and everyone can learn to play and read music in as little as 15 minutes, in a fun intuitive way with over 80% accuracy the first time out of the gate, that creates instant opportunity for virtually everyone to enjoy the boundless benefits of music!
Imagine YOUR kids with:
- Better Grades and Test Scores
- Increased Ability to Learn, Comprehend and Engage
- Improved Communication Skills and Social Interaction
- Accelerated Attention-Span and Focus
What if I told you it’s as simple and entertaining as playing a game and it doesn’t even matter if they have already had bad music experiences?

Don’t just take my word for it, these benefits are proven by the massive amounts of endless research that’s available. I promise it has an effect in so many places that I bet you haven’t even thought about or considered. Let me show you…
Without getting too far into “The Theory of Multiple Intelligences” developed in1983 by Dr. Howard Gardner, professor of education at Harvard University, he stated that: Musical Intelligence is proven as one of the top 3 intelligences required to open up all the other intelligences within any human being in early developmental stages. (and p.s. there are 8 intelligences) Musical intelligence is listed with linguistic intelligence and logical mathematical intelligence as the top 3 forms of intellect to open up the human brain.
He goes on to say: “Unfortunately, many children who have these gifts don’t receive much reinforcement for them in school. Many of these kids, in fact, end up being labeled “learning disabled” “ADD” (Attention Deficit Disorder) or simply underachievers, when their unique ways of thinking and learning aren’t addressed by a heavily linguistic or logical-mathematical classroom.”
The theory of multiple intelligences proposes a major transformation in the way our schools are run and how our kids are educated. It suggests that teachers be trained to present their lessons in a wide variety of ways using music, cooperative learning, art activities, role play, multimedia, field trips, inner reflection, and much more.
Dr. Frank Wilson is an assistant clinical professor neurology at the University of California School of Medicine, San Francisco.His studies show that instrumental practice enhances coordination, concentration and memory and also brings about the improvement of eyesight and hearing. He further reports that the process of learning to play an instrument refines the development of the brain and the entire neurological system.
"It's Been Proven That The Arts And Music Play A Very Important Role In The Development Of Intellect And Aesthetic Abilities"
Dr. Gardner says: “Our schools and culture focus most of their attention on linguistic and logical-mathematical intelligence. We esteem the highly articulate or logical people of our culture, we should also place equal attention on individuals who show gifts in the other intelligences: the artists, architects, musicians, naturalists, designers, dancers, therapists, entrepreneurs, and others who enrich the world in which we live.”

Immediately Your Kids Can be Experiencing The Benefits.
It has been proven time and time again what Music ministers to in the development of children and impacts their lives in ways that show up clear into adulthood.
Most Attentive Parents Feel the Same Way:
YOU want your kids to have a better quality of life.
YOU want to have the advanced knowledge to give Your kids opportunity.
YOU want to help them become smarter to get better jobs with better income.
YOU want them to have better more rewarding relationships in all areas of their lives.
I know you believe this because you have made great personal sacrifice to provide for and add to your child’s life! There’s no doubt that public school systems have cut back on music and arts programs, and it’s only because of socially responsible parents like you that our kids are growing up smarter, healthier and more responsible than ever before. We all know music training is important, but how far can it really take them?

Maybe as a proactive parent you’re already flying leaps ahead in understanding the benefits of adding music to your child's life, but you feel as though you struggle in this area, and that resources are hard to come by, especially when starting out. The questions surrounding this topic go on for days, but I’ve got to be honest here…I believe in all sincerity that we have your answer!
