A Month of Music Theory Games for sale

’10 Minute Music Theory Card Games’ ™

is a year-long series of card games intended to be played at the end of each lesson.

This slowly builds understanding from the simplest concept until it is intrinsically understood.

Students want to come to lessons because they are motivated and excited about learning.

Their progress is solid and steady.

They understand intervals and otherwise difficult music theory concepts by playing games until they are at lightning speed.

All games include ‘clue cards‘ with all the answers ‘nurture don’t test’.

 Combined with listening to the music, the understanding of the notes and their relationship to all the notes is a great musical foundation.

The symbols study cards are the start to building a strong foundation of knowledge on little step at a time. Reviewing cards that hold on the answers and weekly removing a small part of the information is a way of embedding knowledge and insuring success with the pat on the back of success. The students will know the answers. They will be nurtured not tested.

(don’t overlook this step.  It provides success in the following weeks with the games.  Great for the right brained student and the visual learner.)
