Not often in a niche market like music theory does something new and innovative go breaking down walls so...The Musical Trixstar modern concept for learning music theory using software as a game is a welcome relief.
Teachers like it because of its different approach and it ticks their boxes for content, parents like it because they want their kids to find reading music easier and that way stick with lessons. Kids like it because its modern and they quickly grasp the game concept making a huge impact.
There are always down sides as there is no substitute for physically writing music down but Trixstar offers content based on the ABRSM & Trinity Guildhall Grade 1 syllabuses therefore what you get is up to date.
General knowledge is in this game which is controversial because in the theory exams world music/music trivia is not required. It's in there because its a game and is branded by that.
Don't hesitate because for the price it's sold at - £4.50 you can afford to try it once but it will make a positive difference.
