Music Ace Deluxe teaches music fundamentals for beginning music students of all ages

This is one of those CD-ROMs that should be in the library of every home educator. Here you have a masterful blend of solid instruction, engaging drillwork through the use of games, and the opportunity to be creative.

Introduction to Music Fundamentals
Music Ace Deluxe is designed to provide an introduction to music fundamentals for beginning music students of all ages. Users participate in a series of self-paced lessons that reinforce fundamental music skills and an understanding of music theory.

Sharpen Music Skills
Comprehensive lessons feature such topics as: keyboard basics, pitch identification, rhythm, note reading, sharps & flats, introduction to key signature, major scales, and much more. Challenging games, one per lesson, sharpen music skills and improve retention of important lesson concepts.

More than 2,000 Musical Examples
Music Ace Deluxe also features more than 2,000 musical examples from seventy-five composers to reinforce traditional music instruction, both vocal and instrumental. Using visual and auditory clues, children develop hundreds of music skills, including beat and pitch discrimination, staff and keyboard relationships, and the meanings of important musical terms.

Interactive Activities
Instruction is tailored to children's responses, giving them just the right amount of help while they're learning. Interactive activities ("games" to your children) reinforce ear training, sight reading, rhythmic dictation, composing rhythms and melodies, distinguishing harmonies and melodies, and so much more.

Compose and Listen to Your Own Music
Plus, your child can take what he has learned to the Music Doodle Pad where he can easily compose and listen to his own music using a variety of instrument sounds. These creative compositions can even be saved and played back for others (I'll let you decide if this is a plus or not!) This remarkable software has received more than twenty-eight awards and honors and has the rare distinction of being placed in the Timberdoodle family library. Not many CD-ROMs make it that far!

Recommended for ages eight to adult; however, we would not hesitate to recommend it for younger children if they are reading at a third-grade level or better

Teaches Music Theory in a Fun Way! February 15, 2011
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
I bought this for my 3 daughters who I am giving piano lessons.  Because I don't have a lot of time to work on each one individually on music theory, I was hoping this would teach and help them while working on their own and at their own individual pace.  I was not disappointed.  I highly recommend it! The "Progress" page where you can see which lessons they have finished is helpful to me as their teacher.  They are learning their notes, theory, etc, without me sitting at the piano constantly teaching and reviewing!  Great program!

Another GREAT independent curricula! February 10, 2011
Reviewer: Rebecca from Federal Way, WA United States  
With 5 school-agers and 18 month twin BOYS i'm ALL about the independent school work! when my children's Choir director suggested i should work on them with basic musical concepts we bought this.  It is going very well, my 7 and 9 year old daughters use it daily and are developing skills in music at a reasonable pace. I love that its completely hands off for me! AND they enjoy it enough to be the first computer subject they do.

Fabulous, simple music program January 11, 2011
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Alameda, CA United States  
This program is very simple in its presentation, yet it provides a thorough grounding in the basics of music theory.  I have been learning along with my daughter, who is six and does not read well yet.  She can use the program easily and independently, as it does not require much reading at all.  I find that the program is helping me to understand things that I had never managed to glean from classes and music lessons.  I highly recommend it, on its own or in combination with music lessons.  I imagine it would be a great confidence builder for a child studying an instrument.  Of note:  it is not trivial to install this software on a modern Mac.  If you are patient and look it up online, it can be done, though, and once installed it works perfectly.
