The Match-up Magnets enable students to learn and practice crucial aspects of music theory through hands-on interaction. As the proverb says, "I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand."
The Key Signature Magnets help the learner to understand key signatures and the relationship between major and minor keys.
- Students can practice matching 15 key signatures with their major and minor key names.
- Beginner students can start by practicing the C major (no sharps or flats), G major (1 sharp) and F major (1 flat) key signatures, then add key signatures with more sharps and flats as they learn them.
The Intervals Magnets help the learner to recognize melodic and harmonic intervals.
- Students can practice matching 8 harmonic and melodic intervals with their interval number.
- Beginner students can start with seconds and thirds (steps and skips), and add more intervals as they learn them.
The Match-up Magnets are made of quarter inch (6mm) thick magnetic-backed foam, making them easy to pick up and place on the Magnetic Stave.
