Want to turn music theory lessons into playtime? Carnegie Hall Park™ Music Theory Board Game has students navigation the Carnegie Hall parking lot with matchbox cars (that you provide) in a wacky race to collect 15 cards and win the game.
Carnegie Hall Park™ Music Theory Board Game was created for beginning music students, to help them drill basic music theory symbols and music terms.
Carnegie Hall Park™ is fun to play. It’s a bit like Trivial Pursuit with the colored parking space curbs. Students drive into parking spaces with colored curbs with their matchbox cars. They select a card from the green, blue, yellow, magenta or orange piles depending on which space they park in, and roll of the dice determines the space they land in. To win the game you must have landed in each of the green, blue, yellow, magenta or orange parking spaces and answered the questions correctly. To add a little risk to the game “Parking Tickets” threaten the end of the game for any player that answers 3 questions incorrectly.
