A music theory adventure for young learners

  • Meet Max the musical detective of Monster Town
  • Can you help him solve the mystery of the mashed potato eater?
  • Rule out the monsters one by one by searching for clues in the music theory games

 

 


What is included?

  • There are twelve online theory games to play and each one reveals a clue to the identity of the mashed potato monster. Some include leaderboards for extra fun and can be played as many times as you like until access expires (one purchase gives access to one person).
  • A printable PDF with ‘case files’ so you can keep track of the monsters!
  • Access to the music pack is one year for each student which is plenty of time to solve the mystery! (three chances to correctly unlock the monster clue).

Music theory topics

Topics are all at beginner level and designed with younger beginners in mind

  • note values (1, 2, 3 and 4 beats)
  • rest values (1, 2 and whole bar rests)
  • time signatures (2, 3 and 4 beats in a bar – missing bar lines or completing a bar)
  • names of the white piano keys (even if students don’t play the piano, a knowledge of the keys of a piano can be very useful when learning theory)
  • musical signs (such as simple dynamic signs, treble and bass clefs etc.).

Learning is fun!

A list of games in this pack:

  • Find Kitty Cat: Kitty Kat likes to wander around the village but keeps getting stuck behind the locked doors. Can you find her? (recognising note values of 1, 2, 3 and 4 beats)
  • Beach Day:   reach the sandcastle before the waves wash it away – three waves and it’s game over! (using note values of 1, 2, 3 and 4 beats)
  • Sailaway Teacher: send your teacher to a desert island if you can add up the note values correctly!
  • Superhero: create your own boy or girl superhero and practice rests (1, 2 and whole bar rests)
  • Spooky Town: visit the town full of friendly ghosts – just don’t tap the bats or it’s game over! (1, 2 and whole bar rests)
  • Autumn Leaves: catch the leaves as they fall to the ground in this fun leaderboard game (names of the white piano keys C, D and E).
  • Sheepy: the sheep need a wash but only pink sheep score points! (split into rounds with round 1 covering the white piano keys C, D and E, and round 2 the keys F, G, A and B).

    These theory games are so useful to revise the beginner’s music theory. It covers all topics we learn as a beginner learner. It is a great idea to put fun games and learning materials together so young students don’t get bored when they actually study music theory. Thank you for this wonderful theory games!
