Students like Music Lessons software because it's fun, it's interactive, and they can work at their own pace. Educators like the program because it's such an easy to use, complete teaching tool. Music Lessons is already being used in over a thousand schools from third grade through college.
Music Lessons II at a Glance:
Areas of Study
The areas of study covered in Music Lessons II include chord elements, triads, triads ear training, seventh chords, seventh chords ear training, and Roman numeral chord identification.
The three study activities, Naming, Writing, and Playing, develop three of the four essential areas of music perception: Visual Recognition, Written Notation, and Keyboard Skills. The fourth area, Ear Training, is covered in the two Ear Training drills, which can also be practiced in the Naming, Writing and Playing activities.
What You'll Learn
With Music Lessons II, you'll lear to: name chords you see in all keys, clefs, qualities, inversions, and open or closed voicings; Write chords on the music staff in all keys, clefs, qualities, and inversions, using the program's drawing tools;
Play chords in all keys, clefs, qualities, and inversions on the program's two instruments (piano and guitar) or from an attached MIDI synthesizer; Hear and identify chords in all keys, clefs, qualities, and inversions in the ear training drills.
Being able to switch between the three study activities in every drill keeps learning interesting, while reinforcing the musical concepts being learned.
Multiple Levels Of Difficulty
Each area of study has three to four subdrills, and each subdrill has multiple difficulty levels. The program works with students from middle school through college.
Custom drills are easily created to target specific areas of study. For example, you could create a drill to work on the ii - V - I chords in the keys of C, F, and G.
You can work in treble clef, bass clef, alto clef, tenor clef, grand staff, or any combination of these. In treble clef you can work with three or four part chords in open or closed voicings.
Piano And Guitar Instruments
In the Playing activity drills, you answer questions by playing the on-screen Piano or Guitar instruments, or an attached MIDI keyboard.
In the Writing activity drills, you answer questions using the program's built in notation tools.
Ear training is a challenging area for many music students. With Music Lessons II, teachers can create custom ear training drills and adjust the slope of the learning curve as needed.
Roman Numeral Identification
These drills help prepare high school students for Advanced Placement Music Theory exams.
You get immediate feedback with on screen scores, and you can work at your own pace. If you don't know the answer, the program will show you. If you don't understand the answer, the built in Help screens clearly and completely explain every musical term and concept used in the program.
Because Music Lessons II is open ended, drills and exercises can be assigned in any order. The software is easily integrated into any existing curriculum.
Music Lessons II works with a wide range of student learning styles and educator preferences. Nearly every aspect of the program's interface is under the user's control.
Hundreds Of Drills
The program provides hundreds of possible chord and harmony exercises formed by combinations of the six areas of study, the three study activities, the multiple levels of difficulty, the five clef choices, and the piano and guitar instruments.
Progress Reports provide a detailed record of student scores on every level of every drill. It's easy to view or print the current assignment, any assignment from the past, or the cumulative listing of scores for all drills done in the past. The cumulative score listing provides an end of term assessment for each student. Progress Reports can be printed and saved for an unlimited number of students.
Built In Music Theory Reference
A comprehensive Music Theory Reference explaining all concepts related to the drills is built into the program and is always available to the music student.
