Instructional Guides

THESE UNIQUE 3 DIMENSIONAL MUSICAL GUIDES HAVE BEEN CREATED TO HELP US ALL “SEE” THE INHERINT SIMPLICITY OF OUR SYSTEM OF MUSICAL HARMONY.

THEY CAN BE USED IN CONJUNCTION WITH OUR BOOK, “THE MAGICAL MUSICAL SPIRALED SEASHELL and FRIENDS“, AN INTRODUCTION TO MUSIC THEORY SIMPLIFIED THROUGH PICTURES.

“A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS”

These large “Harmony Guides” are perfect for facilitating a holistic view of music for any group of children or adults. To most, music is wrapped in mystery and is like a foreign language. With the help of these guides, we see the inherent simplicity and structure of our system of musical harmony, and our understanding of what music is really all about, musical terminology, and much more is immediately transformed.

THE STRUCTURE of MUSIC
