Music Ace is designed to provide beginning music students, young and old, with an engaging introduction to music fundamentals and theory. Following the friendly direction of Maestro Max and his choir of Singing Notes, students can participate in 24 comprehensive lessons, play a variety of challenging games, and easily compose and listen to their own music on the innovative Music Doodle Pad.
The school network edition (LAN) of Music Ace makes it easy to organize up to 3600 users at a single site into a maximum of 60 groups. Within each group, educators can track the progress and game scores of up to 60 users. When used in a secure network environment, Music Ace can be configured to grant the appropriate access privileges for both users and administrators.
24 engaging, self-paced lessons develop and reinforce fundamental music skills and an understanding of music theory. Lessons cover:
Staff and keyboard relationship
Sharps, flats and key signatures
Major scales and octaves
Treble, bass and grand staff
