A Step by Step Guide to Using Memrise
Some of my students (and their parents) were wondering exactly how to use Memrise to complete their Summer Theory Challenge.
There are three tasks in the challenge, and you can work on two of them in Memrise.
Memrise is available for iOS and Android, but I have an iPhone right now, so my instructions are for iPhone. I imagine it is pretty similar on the Android. You can even use it on your desktop! My geeky brain is exploding with joy.
Sorry, let’s get to the learning.
First, download the app from iTunes or Google Play. (Or go to their website on your browser.) It’s free. My favorite.
When you open the app, it will ask you to “Sign In” or “Join Now.” Choose “Join Now.”
You can log in with Facebook or sign up with your e-mail.
Click on the find icon at the bottom of your screen. It will show you a list of languages, (a great idea for another day!), but we are looking for “Other Topics.”
Tap on “Other Topics,” and the very first option in the list is “Arts & Literature.” That’s the one for us!
Once you are inside the “Arts and Literature” page, scroll down until you see the module: Reading Notes on a Staff. As you can see, there are LOADS of other Music Theory Modules! Wahoo!
Tap on “START LEARNING” and you are good to go!
To work on the key signatures, navigate past “Reading Notes on a Staff,” to Major Key Signatures, and you can start learning those as well.
There you are! It’s as simple as can be! Within no time, your students will be able to identify notes and key signature with confidence and ease. Feel free to share this post with your whole studio!
