DescriptionThis is the 4th title in a series by contemporary composer Morton Subotnick which focuses on teaching children about music. Through the use of videos, interactivity and games, Playing Music introduces kids to the power of expression with a "Listen, Look and Make It So" concept.
To navigate through the various exercises, players use a point-and-click interface. The gameplay is divided into 5 games. The first game involves listening to a piece of music played in two ways and then choosing which one meets the criteria. In the second, the player will listen to an excerpt of a composition and correlate it with images (a bouncing ball, for instance). Other games include listening to music and finding the missing elements in the written score.
Features include a glossary of musical terms and symbols, over 20 pieces of music by famous composers, the ability to create original compositions and copyright them. Original music can be played in the auditorium on stage or listened to from an audience's point of view. In addition, there are several in-game characters to critique your creations for content, expressiveness and originality.
