Origins of Music Theory Staff Paper
I designed "Music Theory Staff Paper," a hybrid music manuscript notebook, for my theory students. Often I would look up during my lectures to see students just staring at the walls. Staring at me. Staring at their phones. Eyes glazed over. You get it, disengaged..(are these like your students? Or is this YOU in music theory class?!! lol) On the flip side, some of my students would try SO hard to keep up and have multiple notebooks on their desks, lined paper, staff paper..take 10 minutes to write out a piano-keyboard and Circle of 5ths...not to mention when it came time to study for the exam they had to search for all of their notes in multiple places.
Sometimes that little bit of resistance makes the effort to learn music harder than it really should be.
Now my students have the most unique tool to stimulate learning. They are no longer frantic trying to find information and I'm amazed at how their music notation has progressed.
