Music Learning Software for Elementary Music Teachers

It really is an exciting time to be a music teacher. The ubiquitous nature of digital music, the expansion of hard drive space and the increased processing speed of computers has paved the path for quality music learning programs that are software-based.

For Elementary Music teachers, Sibelius Groovy Music is an excellent choice for teaching/learning music. And it's great fun. NEW Groovy Music is a series of three exciting software programs for elementary and middle school students. Fun to use, Groovy Music teaches the basics of sound, rhythm, pitch and composition using pictures and animation - progressing to the study of simple notation as well as major and minor scales.

Students love Groovy Music. It guides them with a simple voiceover and lets them create their own music as well as carry out directed activities, so there's plenty of room for creativity. In fact, Groovy Music is so compelling that once students start making music; they just won't want to stop! And best of all, it's incredibly easy for both teachers and students.

Stay tuned for excellent music software products for middle and high school age groups.
