Educational music software game. 6 game areas feature activities to practice your existing knowledge of names of the piano keys, note names on the treble and bass staff, C major and G major scales, melodic intervals, musical terms, and counting in 4/4 or 3/4 time. No music theory instruction is given - just practice what you already know. Student scores are not tracked. Colorful, fun graphics are good for young children (especially the elementary grades). A great value - perfect for at-home practice, after school programs, or private lesson studios.
For ages 7+ (especially good for elementary grades).
Name That Key: practices piano keys; 20 questions. 17 chromatic keys are shown - click the letter name of the correct key that the ladybug lands on. If a MIDI keyboard is connected, you can play the correct key instead.
Note Name Race: practices notes on the treble & bass staff; 20 questions. Click on the letter name for the note shown; if a MIDI keyboard is connected, you can play the correct key instead. The turtle progresses further through a race for each correct answer given; a wrong answer sends him back to the beginning.
