Many thanks to Mrs. Woods from Centerville Elementary and Ms. Fishel from Whittier Elementary for sharing these with us!
Many fun games that teach you! You can print a certificate when you master a game.
I liked the Rhythm Master game, the Name the Note game, and the Compose Your Own Music game! Also, under “More About Music”, you can learn about instruments, composers, and hear a lot of great music!
