What educators are saying

My kids loved this activity! I have used this as a sub plan for HS classes but also in person for my middle school classes.
A fun way for students to forget the theory that they had forgotten from the past school year! They worked well in groups and enjoyed the challenge.

This Music Escape Room is a twist on the "Escape Room Mania" that has hit the teen (and adult) world in the last few years. Students work as teams to solve mystery codes based using their knowledge of music theory.

Students use:

Note values (whole, half, quarter, eighth notes & rests)

Musical symbols (such as time signature, natural, measure, accent, staff - see preview for details.)

Note names (lines, spaces & ledger lines - shows in both treble clef & bass clef)

Within the clues, students are exposed to famous composers such as Mozart, Beethoven, Clara Schumann, Andrew Lloyd Williams, Leonard Bernstein & Scott Joplin, Zoltan Kodaly & John Williams.

This activities are also perfect for a sub (be sure you have prepped everything ahead of time) or to keep students engaged during a regular classroom lesson Appropriate for upper elementary and middle school music, including band, choir and orchestra.
