    • Are you asking how to play the mp3 files that our part of our materials in your car? If so, that depends a lot on your computer hardware and your car stereo. The most common method is to download the files, burn them to a blank CD or DVD (a DVD holds much more), then play the disc in the car. Unfortunately, some older CD players don’t work well with burned CDs and only a few newer ones play DVDs at all. If you have a fancier stereo you might have more options like a USB slot (copy the files to a jump drive and bring that in the car) or an “aux” input (copy the files to an mp3 player or smartphone and play them from there by connecting your device via an aux cable). If these suggestions unsuccessful or I have misunderstood your question, please feel free to contact our support team at Support@HoffmanAcademy.com. Good luck! – Mr. Hoffman

    • Learning to read sheet music comes a little at a time in my program; the basics are introduced throughout Unit 2. I’m glad you’re looking forward to it! – Mr. Hoffman

  4. I remember that you taught us about LA and Si which mean A and b..
    Why don’t we use them during the song and in the lessons?

    • My method uses Movable Do, which means Do (or the “tonic”) can be different keys, based on the key signature of what you’re playing.

  5. Hi there, I was wondering why does the pattern start in the second line as DO, I thought second line was SO? My daughter loves your videos. thank you.

    • Dear Carlos, That’s a great question. What you are referring to is a system called Fixed Do, where the solfege names always refer to one specific tone. My method uses a version of solfege called Movable Do, which allows Do to be the tonic of the key signature you are using at any given time. Thanks for asking!
