Activities include:

·Follow the Cloud: Karaoke for early learners! Click on the monster under the cloud. As you follow the cloud you'll hear the notes of a well-known tune. A different melody will play each time from a library of five.

·Monster Match: Encourage children to listen carefully and discriminate between sounds. Match each sound made on the top row with one of the monsters, first with visual help, then with sound only as the monsters hide behind their curtains.

·Musical Garden: Click on any object in the garden to trigger off strange and beautiful sounds and animations! Alternatively, any keyboard press will set something off. Children soon learn to combine objects to build shifting musical montages. A different garden will appear each time from a library of five.

·Monster Mixer: Children explore the individual parts within a simple musical arrangement and how they relate to each other. Each monster has a different, looping, part, which can be made louder or softer by stretching it up or down. A different piece will be used each time from a library of five.

·Monster Grid: Make short tunes and rhythms by dragging the monsters into the squares. Each monster plays a different instrument sound. Ready-made tunes can be loaded by pressing keys 1 to 0. This activity also serves as an easy introduction to Musical Monsters.

·Monster Scale: the monsters here represent the notes of an octave. Click on them in turn or hold the mouse down and drag. You can record a 'live' tune by pressing the record button, then playing the monsters, and then the stop button. Your performance can then be played back. A different instrument sound is used each time this activity is selected.

·Clip Art Library: click on the button in the top right corner of the Menu screen. All the images in the library can be printed both in full color or line art, and in various sizes.
