Student engagement strategies are changing. Previously, in a traditional classroom, students would passively take notes while the professor lectures at the front of the class. At best, these lectures would include visual aids and, at worst, they would repeat the assigned text, with little interaction between students and the professor—or between the students themselves.

Engaged students will be more curious about a subject — perhaps even more passionate about it.
Music theory is a major part of the academic core of any music curriculum, and one of the foundations of academia is writing. When writing is assigned in music theory classes , it is often an academic paper with a suggested page length. Academic papers require a large set of skills, from structuring communication, to perceptive analysis, to use of academic language: practicing these skills together may not always be the best way to teach or test them.
