The space-themed music composed for the supplemental workbook Rocket Recorder: Volume 1 has flipped a switch in students, opening their minds to learning by putting them in a place of brain reward/motivation and memory that is remarkable to observe. Students approach their music lessons with increased vigor and engagement, which in turn produces effective practice. Rocket Recorder takes a creative approach to teaching music and impacts the future of music education by looking forward in time to the new scientific discoveries and space technology to engage students and get them ready to learn in music class. Space and rockets are cool and provide the carrot students need to engage. Rocket Recorder was developed by Laurie Orth for advance beginners who have some exposure to BAG and C note reading, and has been workshopped and tested by her students.
