Glory St. Germain and Shelagh McKibbon U’Ren are passionate about theory. They make it fun and have the best little tricks to help students remember. If you ever have a chance to watch them in person or one of the Ultimate music theory videos, you will always learn something. The presentation at conference focused on mnemonics and how they can help students remember especially when testing. Mnemonics ultimately increases test scores by 77%.

Did you know there are different kind of mnemonics? For example…

Connection Mnemonic is information connected to something we already know.

Expression Mnemonics is taking the letter of each letter key and making a sentence.

Spelling Mnemonics- combines word and pictures together.

Music Mnemonics- Music makes us feel something.
