Creating Music Series: Playing Music (Home Version)
By Morton Subotnick
Computer Software CD-ROM
Now children can experience music at the most basic level, before ever picking up an instrument or learning to read! Morton Subotnick’s series of interactive music games facilitates experimentation with the fundamentals of pitch, rhythm, and sounds of various instruments and styles of music. Children learn what it means to play a high or low note, soft or loud, and fast or slow, with lovable characters and detailed explanations to guide them along the way!
How does the composer explain how he wants the music played? How would you play some of the world’s famous classical pieces? Learn about tempo, dynamics and expression with games, performance videos and a glossary of music terms! Then, relate the concepts to written music by seeing the appropriate expression marks on the sheet music. Finally, create your own interpretations of classical music and see it performed by three loveable characters! For ages 8 and up, this version is perfect for home use.
