How I Use It
I used this product to both introduce and extend musical instruction. The introductory videos worked well with the whole class, and the games and activities worked well with small groups and for individual work. Having the choice of different levels of difficulty was important to assure success for all, no matter the learning level.
My Take
I think this is a great tool to introduce large music concepts. It lends itself to greater expansion of topics by the music teacher in whole-class instruction as well as using it to expand small-group and individual instruction.
