A game that helps you learn components of Music Theory that are studied at Grade 5 Theory level. Use Intervals to move along the game board, and complete the different challenges along the way. In 1 minute draw as many instruments as you can, act out a Musical Theory Term, try to edge forwards by playing an ornament in 10 seconds, but be careful that you don’t end up edging backwards, ask 20 questions to try to guess which musical instruction you are. Play each component separately or put them all together for a great session of learning and fun.
