Give your children a strong musical foundation with this fun and entertaining program.
With Making Music, children can experience music at the most basic level—before even picking up an instrument or learning to read. Morton Subotnick's series of interactive music games make it fun to play with the fundamentals of pitch, rhythm, and sounds of various instruments and styles of music. Children learn what it means to play a high or low; soft or loud; and fast or slow note—with lovable characters and detailed explanations to guide them along the way.
Making Music introduces Morton Subotnick's innovative Musical Canvas, where children can draw their compositions to visualize them with different instruments and tools. Other music instruction activities include a mix-and-match melody exercise—where music is divided into beginning, middle, and end sections to teach structure—and an exercise for combining melodies and rhythms—for an understanding of the complete piece of music. Fun, interactive games reinforce musical concepts using the knowledge from the other activities. Recommended for ages 5 and up.
