Intro to Music Theory: Lego Edition has been created to provide kids, and adults alike, a unique experience in learning music. Music theory is often considered boring, dreaded work, but when you get to play with Lego while you learn it helps to enhance the experience. Using a multi-sensory approach to learning helps individuals retain the information. Reading music already engages our auditory and visual sensations but to add another layer with our sense of touch and fine motor skills, we are able to further develop our learning. This course is intended to help those who know nothing about music or who have been struggling with the basic concepts of music from the beginning and want to try a fresh way of learning.
