How I Use It
This website has one excellent feature and that is the game that students can play to tell if a piece of music is the same or different when given a listening sample. This game is easy at first, but becomes more difficult as the student progresses. I would use this game in isolation as a quick review for students. I would only use this game for young students grades k-2.
My Take
The site is outdated and could use new activities with updated graphics. I do like the explanation of pitch on the pitch page and the varying musical samples from culturally diverse repertoire on this page. There are some games that are incomplete (the playing with music page does not have a start button for the scale section). This is a would recommend only as an additional review of pitch concepts and with limited time spent by students on the site. They will get bored quickly and will also exhaust the usefulness of the site within one class period.The composition game is interesting but a bit convoluted and difficult to grasp for younger students.
