Doctor Mozart Music Theory Workbooks

In-Depth Piano Theory Fun for Children's Music Lessons and Home Schooling.

cover

To succeed with a musical instrument, your child needs to understand basic music theory in-depth.

Doctor Mozart workbooks teach music theory in-depth — and they're fun too!

Doctor Mozart's crew of colorful cartoon characters will coach your child with:

  • Entertaining illustrations and diagrams that stimulate your child's interest and serve as memory aids.
  • Highly effective exercises, to ensure that your child understands every topic.
  • Clear, detailed explanations in short, simple sentences.
  • A hands-on, pencil and paper, tactile experience, that involves writing notes, clefs, and musical symbols by hand, for learning that is deep and enduring.

Highly effective for beginners
learning a musical instrument.

Just right for beginners 6 to 12 years old, Doctor Mozart workbooks come in three levels. The Level 1 workbooks offer the solid music theory foundation your child needs to begin music lessons. With close supervision, even some 5-year-old children can start the Level 1 workbooks. The more advanced Level 2 and 3 workbooks will help your 7 to 12 year old child excel with intermediate music lessons.

Whether your child is learning piano, guitar, or violin – or singing in a choir – Doctor Mozart's keyboard-based approach to music theory can help your child succeed.

Popular with Kids;
Recommended by Teachers.

Here is the kind of enthusiastic praise Doctor Mozart has received from music teachers:

"As a Certified Teacher of Kelly Kirby Kindergarten Piano, I have several of my 4 and 5 year olds using the Doctor Mozart Workbook. They are enjoying it immensely." D.L., Alberta.

"Our little ones (Kindergarten and 1st graders) especially love this workbook. I'm really impressed with how much they enjoy doing their theory work. If anything is going to get done during the week, it is their pages in Doctor Mozart." L.H., Huntington Center for the Arts, Monroe, LA

"I have been searching for a theory workbook which will enhance the piano student's lessons rather than bore them. I have also been unable to find theory workbooks which focus on linking the keyboard to the staff. The Doctor Mozart theory workbook is filled with everything for which I have been searching. The pages are colorful, and there are interesting, fun tips that help students retain information in ways not found in the traditional theory workbooks. I was THRILLED to find that this workbook has many sections dedicated to helping the student realize which staff note each key on the piano is related to. Thank you!" J.K., Maple Grove, Minnesota
