Breezin' Times: News, Tips & Flicks

It's November ...

Ever had to stop a rehearsal to explain a dotted rhythm? Chances are these students need deeper knowledge of music notation and theory concepts. But where do you find the time? One solution is to build rapid response to music theory concepts the Breezin' Thru Theory way. With just minutes of class time, and in a fun & engaging way, you can develop more literate musicians which we all know leads to better performances. This month we'll focus on how to do just that. Woohoo - enjoy breezin' thru!

FUN Interactive Games

Our online Hockey Shoot 'n Score game is a great way to build rapid response. Students have 2 minutes to score 18 out of 20 or better to move up a level. And if they don't, they can turn to the online binder to brush up. WARNING: Don't let the fun factor fool you. It gets pretty tough as you progress from Stickin' The Staff & Rhythm Rocks to Intervals & Triads. Have your kids compete in class or play online at home - they'll love it! See it in action or Try it here.


Class In Action

The Mad Dash Drills are another great way to build rapid response. There are over 200 drills to choose from and whether you have a hi tech or lo tech environment, they're designed to work for you. See the Drills being done in a computer lab with notation software or with paper before a performance class.

"I've been using the Mad Dash Drills regularly with my students and their grades improved signficantly over other years. Breezin' Thru Theory has changed my kids' attitude toward learning music theory."

Tips & Tricks

Here's a fun one for you,
from Donna Dupuy at Appleby College School!


"My Upper One Instrumental Music class recently completed a class challenge. After using Breezin' Thru Theory to practice, all members of the class can now write out the Circle of Fifths in less than 3 minutes. The fastest time was achieved by Ashley Khun who can complete it in less than 20 seconds. To celebrate the success of the class, Ashley & Kennedy Bailey baked the Circle of Fifths in cupcakes!"

Woohoo- Ashley! How much fun is this.
