Music Ace is a Fun Way to Learn Music, SW Teaches Real Music Skills
Music Ace builds solid music foundation for beginning music students, young or old. This easy-to-use, self-paced and interactive program has won over 12 awards since its release, including awards from Family PC, Oppenheim Toy Portfolio, ERIC and a Parentsí Choice Gold Award.
An animated conductor, Maestro Max, and his choir of singing notes lead students through a series of 24 comprehensive lessons designed to develop and reinforce fundamental music skills. Lesson topics include staff and keyboard relationship, pitch identification and note reading, listening skills and much more.
After completing each lesson, learners can test their knowledge with challenging games that reinforce skills learned. A powerful Music Doodle Pad lets one easily compose and arrange music, using a variety of instrument sounds. These creative compositions can be saved and played back for others, showcasing the knowledge and skills aquired from the lessons and games.
Music Ace stands apart from other programs by teaching real music skills, not just an introduction to music in general. And, it d'es this in an engaging manner that keeps students interested. Also, unlike some other programs, no expensive MIDI keyboard is required.
According to the firm, around 2,000 music teachers are using Music Ace in studios and schools. A single copy is $50, and lab-packs and site licenses are also available. Harmonic Vision, Evanston, IL, (800) 644-4994, www.harmonicvision.com. WM
