acknowledge as soon as possible . With my professor and peer’s encourage and help, I designed and improved my music theory class plan which is about modern western modes base on these great theories include Jerome Seymour Bruner (born October 1, 1915), Robert Mills Gagné (August 21, 1916 – April 28, 2002), Burrhus Frederic Skinner (March 20, 1904 – August 18, 1990), Lev Semyonovich Vygotsky(1896 – June 11, 1934) and so forth.
