    This version combines 36 of the music lessons from Music Ace and Music Ace 2 into a single, carefully constructed product. It does not include all the lessons of Music Ace Gold, but it does include enough instruction for students to master important music concepts and skills. Maestro Max still leads students through the lessons and the Music Doodle Pad is still included. Thirty-six games (one per lesson) sharpen music skills while adding lots of fun, and this edition allows you to determine the game difficulty as well. Other features of the deluxe version enable users to select clef instruction (treble and bass, treble only, bass only, or alto only), determine rhythmic stringency (relaxed or strict), and adjust the appearance of notes (with or without faces). The software tracks the progress of up to 10 users, and like all the Music Ace versions, the lessons are self-paced and work for any instrument. The deluxe version also features more than 2000 musical examples from 75 composers to reinforce traditional music instruction, both vocal and instrumental. The software is also compatible with general MIDI keyboards (which are optional for the use of the product). Great coverage of beginning music topics including note reading, ear training, notation, keyboard, scales, rhythm, melody, key signatures, time signatures, harmony, and musical terms. Operates on Windows and Macintosh. System Requirements: Windows XP/Vista/7, Mac OS X.411 or later. 50 MB free RAM, 60 MB free hard disk space, 16 bit sound, CD-ROM and mouse. ~ Rachel

    This study guide by Beautiful Feet is a musical journey from the Baroque age of composition to the Modern era. Beginning with Corelli, the father of modern violin playing, and tracing the development of composition up to the time of Igor Stravinsky, students will learn of the lives of the great composers, many of whom were devoted Christians. The formation of the orchestra as well as a study of each type of musical instrument is included. Much of the practical use students will get from the study guide will come with also using the Music Masters CD collection (also available in our music section) so students learn how to identify music by great composers, as well as name instruments by sound. A combination of music and biography makes this study enjoyable.

    This one-year course spans the history of music and its composers from ancient times to the 20th century. The comprehensive study guide employs familiar music history books such as The Usborne Story of Music, The Gift of Music, and The Spiritual Lives of the Great Composers as reference materials. This study consists of 30 lessons and 5 tests. In order to cover the course in one year, students devote approximately 30 minutes per week (more if optional activities are completed) to study. One lesson is assigned each Monday, to be completed during the week. Each lesson begins with required reading from one of the reference books listed above. Students must then complete writing activities and answer a series of questions pertaining to the sections they have read. Some of the questions are strictly objective, such as "How was a troubadour different from a minstrel?" Students should be able to find the answers to these questions within the text of the required reading. Other study questions have more subjective answers. Questions such as "What do you think Confucius meant by the quote 'If you want to understand a nation, listen to its music'?" will require more thinking on the part of the student. Complete answer key and test solutions are in the back of the manual. Optional activities are suggested which greatly enhance the course. One of these activities utilizes a permanent exhibit found on the Internet Public Library. (Text includes complete web addresses for all Internet pages cited.) Other optional supplemental materials include the Music Masters and Classical Kids audio series. The author also recommends attending live symphonies in your area if possible. Though written for students aged 13-15, this guide may be modified for younger students by substituting the reading material with books like Famous Composers or the Getting to Know the World's Greatest Composers series. Older students may be assigned a major paper for extra work. - Rachel

    At least three music courses (for beginners – either in age or experience) in one user-friendly, family-oriented package: music appreciation/history, reading music, and making/enjoying music. We all have this nagging idea that we really ought to be doing something about music but don't know exactly what. Or perhaps you're one of those moms who recognize that there are tremendous advantages for your children (spiritually, emotionally and mentally) when enjoying music is part of your daily lives but you can't imagine how you'll fit one more thing into your busy lives and homes. Marcia Washburn makes it easy for us by leading us step-by-step and providing a wealth of online resources to broaden that experience. You don't need to be able to read music or recognize one composer from another or spend a lot of money or time gathering resources. The author even assures us that this product has been "field-tested to ensure that musically illiterate adults can confidently use it with their children."

    Beethoven Who? is an ebook, or in other words, pdf files on CD-ROM, readable from your computer. This ebook-on-CD format is perfect for providing quality information, hands-on activities, games, reproducible listening sheets and listening suggestions in an affordable package. AND, there are links – lots of links – to quality internet sources for listening to orchestra-performed and artist-performed pieces (classical, traditional, folk, patriotic, and sacred music). Many of the listening links also provide video footage so you get a great view of each instrument in the orchestra. As we mentioned earlier, coverage of all things introductory and basic to music appreciation and enjoyment are included. The first section – Listening to Music – provides an overview of the elements of music (terms and basic info) followed by a period-by-period examination of major composers, musical instruments, historical setting, and notable pieces. In this section are briefly annotated (the author tells what to expect and look for) links to orchestras performing various pieces as well as video re-enactments such as costumed musicians playing period instruments while floating on the Thames River in England and even flash mob versions. The links are designed to build in you and your children appreciation for the music involved and to just plain enjoy a huge variety of musical experiences. In this section you'll find descriptions of the various periods (Baroque, Classical, Romantic, Impressionistic, and Twentieth Century), short biographical sketches (with full-color pictures) of the major composers within each, examples of their major works, and lots of interesting odds and ends about both composers and works. To give you just a bit of an idea of the care that has gone into making the video link selections, consider the Flight of the Bumblebee (a work of the Romantic period composer Rimsky-Korsakov). Links for this piece include an orchestra (so you can see how fast their fingers need to move), the record-holder for the fastest violin version, a master violinist (Perlman) performance, a number of solo instruments each playing the piece (oboe, bassoon, clarinet, soprano recorder, and tuba), a Canadian Brass comedic version, a Disney cartoon shortened version, and, lastly, a boogie-woogie rendition on the piano. Notes on these links include observing that at 1:55 the pianist is smiling at an audience member (boogie-woogie) and a caution not to read the comments on the clarinet link (inappropriate content).

    The second section – Reading Music – covers all the basics providing a wealth of reinforcing activities. Reproducible masters are often included for memory games or bingo, for instance, as well as using a variety of rudimentary, homemade musical instruments (toilet paper tube maracas, oatmeal container drums, metal bottle cap tambourines, and a drinking glass orchestra – all instructions included). Music Reading, Pitch, Rhythm, and Dynamics are all covered. Activities are easy and fun to do and will involve your entire family in a musical exploration adventure.

    Section 3 – Making Music – transported me back to my grade school days and had me agreeing with the author that American folk and traditional songs – once learned in elementary school music classes like mine – are disappearing from our culture. You'll appreciate her determination not to let that happen as you listen through her list of not-to-be-missed songs: action songs (London Bridge), love/friendship songs (Bicycle Built for Two), animal songs (Itsy, Bitsy Spider), work songs (I've Been Working on the Railroad), patriotic songs (America the Beautiful), and sacred songs (hymns such as A Mighty Fortress and children's songs such as Jesus Loves the Little Children). Trust me, I've only scratched the surface of her many, many suggestions here. Again, there are a multitude of annotated links and often, historical and cultural anecdotes. She ends this section with suggestions for ways you can make music together as a family and ways to incorporate musical experiences into your everyday family life. A series of appendices include How to Use the Links in the Book, an Elements of Music Chart, a master for Sample Listening Sheets, a Resources list, and a Glossary of Terms. There is also a complete index for the entire e-book./

    You can probably tell that I'm excited about the potential of this product to open the lives of our children to musical experiences, some noble, some mundane. There's over 300 pages of musical information, countless links, reproducibles, and, most importantly, the sense that "I can do this!" ~ Janice
