☆ What is Thinking Theory? ☆
★Thinking Theory is a series of music theory workbooks, designed to accelerate learning while providing plenty of reinforcement of each concept.
★All concepts are presented in a clear and concise way and page layouts are clean and consistent.
★No topic is introduced without being revisited several times later in the book.
★Thinking Theory is designed so you can start anywhere in the series. Concepts are not left out of later books, just covered more quickly.
★The flashcard games provide a unique way to learn away from the page, and make learning and teaching more secure and more fun.
★The “Level Up!” tests at the end of each chapter and book allow you to evaluate student learning and plan their next step.
★The Thinking Theory Plus books provide a lateral move for students who had finished one book but are not quite ready for the next.
★Singing with solfa (moveable do) is integrated into the theory books. Solfa helps students with ear training, transposing, sight reading and composition.
