Brain Beats in the Classroom

Marbles very own Brain Beats is great for your classroom!

If you are familiar with Schoolhouse Rock, odds are you are thinking or even humming the tune to "I'm Just a Bill" right as you read this very sentence. That's the power of using music to memorize facts! It's a process called rote leaning, or the idea of memorization based on repetition. Music, in this case, is the best form of repetition because it's accompanied by a catchy tune. And if a cartoon song from the 70's is still helping people recite the Preamble to the Constitution and get their conjunctions straight, it must be a useful learning tool. There is evidence out there to suggest rote learning should not be the sole method of teaching, but if you use it as an exercise for the classroom it may be the perfect way to learn say, states and capitals... Enter Brain Beats, a compilation of various subjects and facts set to music that Marbles released about 2 years ago. It gives an updated perspective on this idea of learning through music for a new generation. The result has been overwhelming. Tour the States - Official Music Video http://youtu.be/_E2CNZIlVIg Our Tour of the States video has garnered over 2.6 million views on YouTube and better yet has inspired numerous teachers and students around the country to use our song and make their own version of Tour the States. Check out some really great submission here: Brain Beats in the Classroom. We hope you are able to find a place for Brain Beats in your classroom. Feel free to share the results! Scan the track lists below to see if any topics fit your lesson plans. Enjoy!
