A Primer on Evaluating and Using Music Technology

The guide discusses the music technology available and best practices in selecting and integrating music technology into the classroom. He also reviews current music technology offerings and analyzes how they can be used to support state and national music education standards.

Music Ace Lesson Correlations to Popular Piano Methods
To make the Music Ace products more useful with the most popular piano methods, we have developed a set of Method Correlations and lesson reference labels that can be placed into the method book. The correlations and labels are available as printable pdf downloads.

The correlations provide a cross-reference between specific method books and pages within those books to specific Music Ace lessons and sections. These correlations will help piano teachers and students better use Music Ace lessons with their piano lessons. Labels include the page number in the method book and a reference to a specific lesson and section within Music Ace, Music Ace2, Music Ace Deluxe, Music Ace Deluxe – PSE or Music Ace Maestro.

Correlations and labels are currently available for the following methods/books:

  • Hal Leonard – Piano Student Library, Books 1-5 and All-In-One A and B.
  • Faber - My First Piano Adventure, Level A-C; Piano Adventures, Primer-Level 5
  • Alfred – Prep Course, Levels A-F

High Scores for Music Ace Games
Many educators have asked the question "What is the highest possible score for each Music Ace game?" Since many of the games are not deterministic, it is difficult to say precisely. However, as an aid to music educators, we have provided a table of reported high scores for all games. We invite users to submit their own high scores to us, which will be tabulated on the high scores table.
