Music Mind Games (MMG)?

MMG is an alternative method to teaching music theory. Developed by Michiko YURKO, MMG is the result of more than 30 years of research and development.

Comprising of more than 300 games, the method uses 4 main components:

(a) An innovative teaching sequence
(b) A nurturing philosophy
(c) Friendly, colourful materials
(d) Large variety of creative games

The PURPOSE of this workshop:

To raise awareness among music educators and parents, that there is another alternative in teaching music theory besides graded theory i.e. Grade 1, 2 etc.

MMG strongly believes that children learn through playing. With so many game ideas and materials, children learn musical concepts as they participates in the games themselves; they are learning while having fun!
