Using Gum Drop Notes is simple. I created this method with a degree in psychology and certification as a Suzuki violin teacher to help musicians more deeply understand music theory, sight-reading and the music they are playing. This doesn’t represent any psychological issue. We aren’t really seeing colors as we play. What is happening is that each note takes on an identity with sound and color unique to itself. We are using all learning modalities to accomplish this. Simply keep in mind the colors of the notes. Subliminally you will be learning where the notes sit on the staff. You will understand the power of fifths, as well as, sharps and flats, keys etc.. I know it sounds too good to be true but once you begin to use the Gum Drop Notes sheet music, music theory card games, and play-along music, you will be amazed at how fast you learn music theory. Scalesarentjustafishthing.com provides play-along music within the 'schools'. Playing cards embed music theory concepts and layer them as you play the games.
