I could bore you to death with all the details about my musical background. I won't. Instead, I'll just make it known that I wasted a lot of time playing video games growing up. None of them added any valuable life skills ( unless I some how come across a dragon that needs slaying or feel the need to hijack a car after parachuting from a helicopter). So, I never really learned anything playing video games.
Maybe that statement isn't entirely true. As I'm writing this I remember a certain pattern that many of you older gamers will be familiar with: Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, Select, and Start.
Why is this important?
It's a pattern that I will never forget and it only took 1 to 2 times of pressing the keys to store it in my head for a lifetime.
What does this have to do with music?
Music can easily be understood using simple numerical patterns. It's as easy as remembering your own phone number.
Example: (Say the numbers below one time to yourself and then again one time out loud)
2 - 2 - 1 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 1
This is the pattern you would follow for every major scale in music. It is that easy.
Why am I telling you this?
I'm educating you. However, it's not very fun is it? There's no real interaction at all. We've just highlighted one major issue with modern day education. It's really.... boring!
(beta) was created to change that. We want to bring education and gaming together. We want people to learn and have fun doing it! Right now our goal is music education. It does not have to stop there.
