Gamification is a term used to describe the game technique of teaching new concepts.
Gamification is effective because it taps into people's natural desire for competition and achievement.
Gamification is:"The application of game-design elements and game principles in non-game contexts" such as music instruction.
So how does this apply to the Music Mania Games and what they teach? EVERYTHING!
