Are you looking for ways to offer your music students tutorials on theory concepts? Although there are excellent iPad apps that drill and improve ear skills, they don’t always teach. That’s why I’m so excited about my latest project: Understanding Intervals. With this interactive iBook platform you can offer a flipped classroom approach to learning. It’s divided into parts so you can customize assignments to suit your students’ theory level. Bonus, I’m a huge shoe fan and thought it would make things more interesting by comparing intervals to shoes. I think you and your students will enjoy learning how intervals and shoes FIT together!
As a string teacher who spends loads of lesson time on scales and various technical exercises which require a knowledge of intervals - this ebook explains visually and aurally the concept of intervals in a simple and understandable way. Even my non-musician parents will be able to grasp these concepts presented in this format. I plan to share with all the families in my program and colleagues as well. Thank you for this gem!
A great multi-modal guide to understanding intervals for beginners. Will be using it for my students!
Fun but I expected more
This is a slim volume for the price. Citing others books or apps at the end is no replacement for reinforcing concepts within this book. It would be easy to add questions, summaries or games within this text that would make it more efficacious.
