Music Theory for Kids

Try our interactive music theory games, races and listening activities for early musicians.

Welcome to The Mighty Maestro

The Mighty Maestro uses a variety of enjoyable music theory lessons, games and races to introduce concepts such as music notes (across the bass and treble clef), music values, time signatures, dynamics, scales, triads and key signatures. The completion of the program requires listening, observation and a bit of trial and error, leading to a solid understanding of basic music theory. Interactive and engaging, The Mighty Maestro is the perfect way for beginners to learn music notes, music values and the other bits of music theory.
