It’s Saturday, July 30, 2016, and time for Music at ClickSchooling!

 

Recommended Website:

New York Philharmonic Kid Zone

(www.nyphilkids.org/index.html)

Age Range: All (All grades; children with parental supervision)

 

Students will learn about instruments, composers, and music playing with this interactive playground from the New York Philharmonic. While this site is geared for elementary school students, it can be enjoyed by all ages.

Visitors start in the “Game Room” where they can play all kinds of fun games relating to music such as: 

  • Instrument Frenzy – Using your keyboard arrow keys, sort instruments into their correct bin.
  • Percussion Showdown – Repeat the patterns in this “Simon” like game.
  • Puzzles and Quizzes – In the pop up window, at the top, select from either “Fact Match” or “Name Search” then use your browser’s “print” button to print out.
  • Musical Mingles – Create fun little tunes by moving “Mingles”, “Makers”, “Warps”, and “Furniture” around the screen.
  • Music Match Composers – Play this match game to match tunes or composers.
  • Music Match Instruments – Another match game this time to match tunes or instruments
  • Make Your Own Instrument – Click and drag objects to create your own instrument (Note: must have Shockwave installed to work).

There are also links to the Philharmonic main website for other educational experiences such as “Meet some very young composers” and to learn about the Young Peoples Concerts as well as the New York Philharmonic.

But the learning doesn’t stop with the Game Room. Use the links on the sidebar to: 

  • Learn about instruments in the “Instrument Storage Room.
  • Meet conductors and soloists in the “Dressing Room.”
  • Visit the “Composers Gallery” to discover composers from around the world.

(Please Note: when reviewing this website we found that the “Music Quest” in the Game Room and “Instrument Lab” did not work correctly for us.)

This is an entertaining website that will have kids learning as they play.
