We are currently working on them right now, and they will be released later this year. Today we thought we would just give you some of the ideas we have, and invite you to submit your own ideas to help us create this product.

There will be a wide variety of match games in this set of computer games. Students will not only have to match musical symbols and notes, but match keyboard positions to staff positions, match instruments to their sound, match melodies to their notation and more.
Musical Symbol Puzzles
Students will learn the shapes of many different types of musical symbols through a wide variety of puzzles. Race the clock and get the treble clef together!

A computer adaptation of the popular game from our Printable Music Games series will help students know the correct way to write musical notation
Placing the notes on music lines
Students will drag and drop notes on to manuscript – Racing the clock and being very accurate to make sure they are in the right place.
