Hi!  It’s Saturday, September 22, 2012 and time for Music at ClickSchooling!  

Recommended Website:

PracticeSpot.com

Age Range: All (with parental supervision)

This commercial website offers free music theory, lessons, drills, and games.  When you get to the site you’ll see some of the highlights of what is offered in this free section, and then a menu that includes:

*Practice Spot’s Rhythm Gym – Get interactive practice in counting rhythm and time signatures in written music. Click on “Quarter Note Quest” or “Eighth Note Challenge” and then follow the instructions that will take you through each exercise until you gain proficiency.  You’ll see a piece of music. The idea is to clap out the rhythm correctly.  Once you do, you can listen to a midi file and hear it played correctly.  You can also print out the music and practice on a keyboard offline. Once you’ve completed all of the exercises satisfactorily, you can print out a certificate of achievement.

*Music Crosswords – Have fun solving these puzzles that test your knowledge of music and musicians.

*Sightreading Genie – Get over 100 exercises to test your music sight reading ability.

*Chord Wizard – This interactive guide helps you find and learn all of the chords by displaying them on a keyboard.

*Note Reading Wizard – Choose between treble or bass clef, select space or line notes, and then test your skill.

There are more offerings, including “Scales Chef” – a tool to help you learn all 24 major and harmonic minor scales. Unfortunately, the “Scales Chef” wasn’t working properly when I visited the site. Nevertheless, you’ll find plenty of free content that is operating properly that will help music students and teachers alike.
