"First Class Music is superb. It
is proving to be the ideal way to include music in the home school program
for my daughter, Carrie. She is 13 and has tuberous sclerosis
complex and a form of autism with developmental delays, but she thrives on
the computer. This program has beautiful graphics and animation,
great lesson presentation, wonderful video clips, crisp sound, and
appropriate evaluation techniques. It's fun, too -- definitely on
the must-have list for any school or home!" Maureen Reyes
This is a unique program is perfect for an
older or higher functioning child - any child with musical aptitude - it
is simply the best music education program I have come across! Both
of my children absolutely loved this program! Great graphics, great
sound - true music education!
Scores of first-rate lessons guide children
step by step through the basic concepts of music with hundreds of
interactive screens, tons of assessed activities, check points, and
printable reports. Click on instruments to hear their timbre, lines and
dots to discern rhythm, and animated characters to listen to melodies.
Identify wrong notes in scales, work with patterns in music, and build
your own tunes. Students learn about key elements of music such as
dynamics, pitch, rhythm, structure, tempo, and timbre in 15 hours of
learning divided into four stages. Each stage contains lessons with names
like Levels of Loudness, White Notes, Jumpy, Smooth and Crisp, Voice
Types, and Bowed, Blown, or Plucked.
