As former music teachers ourselves, we understand how heavy the pressures of continually coming up with relevant and professional looking theory content can be. You can literally spend hours and hours of your own time making similar worksheets and books yourself, so this product was invented with this need in mind.

Here is a screen capture shot of the printable Music Theory Books major scales page and you’ll see how easy it is for students to follow and complete. In total there are 12 of worksheets and activities on major scales alone in this system starting from the very basic beginnings and progressing step by step through to cover scales up to 4 sharps and flats.

You’ll notice these worksheets deal with one new concept at a time. They are designed specifically so they don’t give too much information too quickly and won’t confuse our students with too many new terms or technical jargon.  Students completing this level worksheet would benefit from having done prior work in semitones and tones and general note naming.

You could  even leave a few gaps in the top information section and make it into a whole class presentation on the whiteboard  for more active whole class discussion and learning.

      Thank you for such a kind comment Li-San. Another feature of the theory books that I feel most proud of is that it’s always evolving and it grows based on a all user feedback. That means that if there’s a topic or worksheet that your classes need and it’s something that will benefit all music teachers in general, just let us know and we’ll write it usually with in 24-48hours. That way you’ll continue getting professional look worksheets and resources without having to do all the preparation and the resource will continue to grow!
