Music Theory – Made Fun!

One of my favorite online resource websites is Ear Training and Improv by Kristin Jensen. Kristin has created the Ultimate Music Theory Worksheet guide.

This includes over 25 free printable worksheets that you can download and use with your students. She has even gone the extra mile and included different activities and ideas you can use these worksheets with your student during their lesson.

You will find worksheets under Note Identification, Rhythm, Major Scales, Circle of 5th’s, Intervals, Half and Whole Steps, Treble and Bass Clef notes and the Music Alphabet.

The worksheets are clever, well thought out and very useful. I had to laugh when I came across the rhythm “bed head” worksheet. Click here for the Ultimate Music Theory Worksheet Guide.

Kristin has also published a scale book that you might not be aware of. Piano Scales Make Piano Magic: Fun and Innovative System for Teaching Piano Scales to Kids

Piano Scales Make Piano Magic introduces 4 friends: Max, The Magician’s Rabbit, Lucy and Alberti the Great. These 4 magical friends guide students in creating “magic” at the piano. Students will learn their Major and Minor Scales and Arpeggios. Included as a bonus with the book is online training videos to help create fun songs using the scales and chords they are learning. Also included is a scale from under the sea and easy chords. To see sample pages and order Piano Scales Make Piano Magic, click here.

If you haven’t visited Kristin’s website before, you must also check out all her Improv and Ear Training resources. She even has some fun composition starter worksheets that I would recommend checking out. Kristin makes Improv and Ear Training simple and fun!
