Now children can experience music at the most basic level, before ever picking up an instrument or learning to read! Morton Subotnick s series of interactive music games facilitates experimenting with the fundamentals of pitch, rhythm and sounds of various instruments and styles of music. Children learn what it means to play a high or low note, soft or loud and fast or slow, with lovable characters and detailed explanations to guide them along the way!
Be the composer, conductor and audience! Learn more about the fundamentals of music as you draw musical notes, experiment with different instruments and put together the components of a score. An updated "musical canvas" allows you to convert drawings into sheet music notation!
