My Take

This is a decent site for teaching basic musical concepts. I liked to use it for demonstrating and explaining some basic concepts like rhythm, pitch, and tempo. It is very limited though. In order for it to be more engaging it needs to provide more opportunities for students to create and experiment with their own music. Also the graphics are pretty "old school".

How I Use It

I used this product to introduce some basic musical concepts such as pitch and tempo. The students were able to play around with changing the tempo of a song and demonstrating different pitches. It worked well as a short launch for the lesson, but the students would definitely lose interest if we continued with it for more than 5-10 minutes.
