Maureen Cox studied for her B.A. at the universities of Bristol in England and Paris-Sorbonne in France. She received her diploma in education from the University of London and the coveted National Froebel Foundation Teaching Certificate from the Maria Grey College before embarking on a teaching career in England and in Scotland. In response to the needs of her music pupils, Maureen produced what is now in the UK a top selling series of five books entitled Theory is Fun. This series, revised and edited by Dr. Victoria McArthur, is now available under the title Blast Off with Music Theory.
