If you are new to this blog, you might not know about the NoteBoys. These little guys are in a series of comics I draw to help students learn a little about music theory.
The NoteBoys think of themselves as actors who teach theory. BlueBoy is very confident and thinks he knows every thing. He’s the fearless leader of the group. RedBoy is the smart, hardworking one, but he is always foiled by BlueBoy. They remain pals anyway. GreenBoy knows a lot more than he thinks he does, but he doesn’t have confidence in himself.
Also appearing every now and then is MightyDot, and the famous PianoGirl.
My students love this series and can’t wait to see what the NoteBoys are up to next.
One teacher told me that she put them all in a binder for students to read before or after lessons. I will often pull them out to explain things because we all know students remember better when they learn through humor. If you want to see the other NoteBoy comics, do a search on the right. The ones explaining chord inversions are very helpful.
