How I Use It
This website should be considered for teachers who are looking for additional resources regarding sheet music, small tutorials, and examples for music terminology. While the site is not meant to engage the learner, it does provide opportunities for the teacher to seek independent work or scaffolding examples. The tutorials do not engage the learner, but could be handy for a reference point when students are not at school.
My Take
8notes.com is simple a database for additional resources that students could use as practice or scaffolding difficult musical concepts. I would not use this website as a means to engage students or provide initial direct instruction/ exploration of muscial concepts. Students could be made aware of this resource for additional practice, but I would not let students explore this website without a purpose to research or create further ideas. The site is somewhat free; however, it does offer memberhip for schools and individuals; as far as I could tell, the only advantages of this membership include the opportunity to upload personal musical compostions in audio or PDF format and further access to audio components of the site.
