Review of Theory Explorer 2
by Matthew Chua, singer and conductor
Dorothy Chia's Theory Explorer book is specially designed for the inquisitive and creative minds of young children. Where most other theory books lack in their dry and technical nature, the Theory Explorer stands out by fusing colorful illustrations to educate the young minds about endangered animals species and the conservation of Mother Earth. The difficulty level of each section is progressive and easy to grasp, yet detailed enough to cover comprehensive grounds in music theory. The non-repetitive nature of the book and constantly changing environment will cater to the short-attention span of children by giving them more to look forward to.
Testimonials of kids who have used the Theory Explorer books:
Sophia Burke, 7
Sophia enjoys Theory Explorer book 1 because the activities in the book are fun! "My favourite page is page 32 because I like windmills," said Sophia, "The fill-in-the-blanks storytime is also enjoyable as I get to figure out the stories."
Darryl Tan, 7
Darryl loves Theory Explorer book 1 and looks forward to working on his music theory each week. His favourite page is page 34 because it features Singapore's very own Esplanade Theatre! Darryl likes rabbits so he is very intrigued by the illustrations in the book which has the Bear and Rabbit families.
Sophia Barret, 10
Sophia has just completed Theory Explorer book 1. She found the illustrations to be very cute. Her favourite activity is the one featuring the Esplanade. Sophia is starting on Theory Explorer 2, and she thinks it is going to be harder.

Dear Dorothy Chia,
A million thanks for having come up with an invaluable book ‘The Questions’! I am especially impressed with the systematic organisation of the topics. The questions are indeed relevant to the pedagogy field. It is highly recommended to those who intend to take a teaching diploma. It has certainly helped my student pass the DipABRSM (teaching) diploma.
