theory game

Tricia Marton developed It’s JUST Music Theory™ to help students master challenging music theory concepts. The game covers intermediate and advanced level music theory topics in an interactive platform that students find engaging.


It is designed for 4 players who move about the game board and answer questions to test and improve their mastery of a wide range of theory concepts. 

Concepts covered include terms, intervals, spelling triads, chord functions, and key signatures. While enhancing overall music theory knowledge, the game provides questions geared specifically toward progressive music theory tests. Replaying the game allows students to encounter new variables and new tests, reinforcing their learning.
