Musical Memory Set One

Musical Memory Set One

This is the first in a set of memory games to teach music theory vocabulary words. This set uses the words in Level 1 of the TMTA Student Affiliate theory test. In TMTA, this is the first school grade level. Levels 2 and 3 will be posted soon.

The first page contains the vocabulary words and symbols. Students play it like regular memory games, but instead of matching the exact card, they match the symbol with the definition. The second page is a graphic for the back of the cards. The third page is a handy grid to place the cards which  is very helpful for young students. I like to glue this on the inside of a pocket folder, which I also use to store the cards. You can take a look at my post on how I store my other memory games  to see how it looks. This game can be played with the teacher, another student, or alone.

    Thanks, Susan, this is amazing! I’m a teacher in Texas and I feel like the one thing my students need more help with in preparing for the theory tests is knowing all the vocab words. I’ve been meaning to find a fun way to help them drill all of that information — this is perfect! Thanks!!!! I look forward to the other levels, too. Thanks in advance!

      Thanks for your comment, Emily. For the last several weeks I’ve been trying to think of ways to make learning theory more fun, or at least different than what I have done before. I’ve published a lot of material for note identification, so now it’s time to tackle the vocabulary words.
