Review: Education World Review
Creating Music is a great place for youngsters to explore musical composition. The site admirably accomplishes its goal of providing "an environment for children to experience creative play in the creation of music, with the same ease they have been able to enjoy with toys, drawing tools, building blocks, puppets, etc." As easy as they can finger-paint, children can "draw" musical compositions and listen to their creations, manipulate the tempo of classical music, solve musical puzzles by rearranging the melodies, and experiment with performing music by movement gesture. Whether you are a music teacher or a parent wanting to increase your child's musical awareness, this site is one you'll want to bookmark.
