Scales Aren't Just a Fish Thing takes the study of music one step further and color-codes all the notes, adds music theory card games and play-along sheet music. Every student, no matter their age or learning style or difference, can easily move through the music and memorize as they go. Learning of difficult music theory concepts takes place through the silent clues: musical stems the color of the string the note is played, sharps and flats circled with the color of the note it is moving toward, color-coding of each note. No need for correction at your next lesson. Never practice incorrectly again with all the clues and crutches offered with Scales Aren't Just a Fish Thing. As this is already Book 3 'Manatees' in the Scales Aren't Just a Fish Thing Gum Drop Note Series, I assume you know the drill. But just in case you are jumping in the deep end, let me explain how it works. Each note has its own color. A = Red B = Purple C = Brown (Chocolate) D = Gray E = Blue F= Orange G=Green Any sharp or flat is circled with the color it is moving toward. The stem of the note is the color of the string it is played on.
