Thinking Theory Roadmap – Prep Book

Thinking Theory is a comprehensive set of theory workbooks which takes students up to an intermediate or grade 3 standard of music theory. I wrote these books because I was frustrated by the lack of reinforcement in other theory books, and wanted books that were structured for spiral learning so that students really remembered things in the long term.

It only makes sense that we would also use games to get more practice of each topic and interact with them in different ways. I hope these Thinking Theory Roadmaps will be helpful for you in achieving that.

You can find the Thinking Theory books in the Colourful Keys store. If you're ordering, use the special members' code VMTHERO to get 10% off!
