Journey back in time in this museum to learn about innovations that have helped shape music history! Music students will be motivated to practice and complete goals in this fun and effective year-long practice incentive program. Using solid instructional design theories, Music Innovations Museum ™ motivation program encourages and rewards students at just the right intervals while creating enthusiasm for piano and instrument lessons.
Students practice and complete goals set by the teacher to earn squares on the giant game board (2 ft x 3 ft) hung in the studio.
Music students must visit all 12 exhibits to earn collector cards. The back of each card provides fun factions about the innovation exhibit covering the Prehistoric, Ancient, Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, Romantic, Classical, Impressionistic, Modern, Contemporary, 21st Century eras.
Each student’s goal is to finish the game during the year. Because they choose their path in the game, students are not able to easily see who is in the lead. However, competitive students may be motivated to finish first. They will ask who is first or if anyone has finished yet and teachers may add a competitive aspect to the game by awarding a prize for the top finishers.
Teacher and parent-approved! Both teachers and parents have noticed increased motivation and results with this practice motivation program!
