"The 24 lessons on such basic music concepts as notation, rhythm, melody, and harmony are fun, engaging, and well designed. You can even attach an electronic keyboard during the lessons, but the goal of the program is to teach fundamental music concepts, with or without an external keyboard. This program offers a systematic, affordable way to introduce children to music essentials."

"I was so wildly impressed with this program that if one award were to be given this year, I would hand it over promptly to Harmonic Vision, the developers of this program. Aside from the fact that this program truly teaches kids how to write music, understand rhythm, melody, harmony, syncopation, time signature and all the music basics, the program is just plain captivating. Twenty-four lessons are packed into this program that turns your computer into a veritable midi-system, while a creative doodle pad makes composing music a visual and auditory extravaganza. Take a look at this one right away. Your family will be fighting for their turn at the keyboard."

"...an ideal supplement to one-on-one music instruction" that "uses delightful animation in a crisp, well-structured learning environment to walk anyone older than around 8 years old through the world of rhythm, harmony, syncopation, standard notation, melody and time signatures...."

"This sequel to the excellent Music Ace is even better than [the] original. The 24 lessons on basic music concepts like notation, rhythm, melody and harmony are fun, engaging and very well designed. You can attach a midi keyboard during the lessons, but the goal of the program is to teach fundamental music concepts, much of which is accomplished without an external keyboard. This program offers a systematic, affordable way to introduce children to music essentials."
-- Children's Software Revue, September/October 1999
"Each lesson involves a lesson followed by a game, although game is a gentle word: they are really exercises in ear training and rhythm that are more useful than what typically passes for entertainment on children's software."
-- Bruce Headlam, The New York Times
