Musical Monsters is so easy to use that anyone can create a tune! Build rhythms and melodies by putting the singing creatures onto the music board, then listen and watch the results. Early learners quickly gain confidence to create their own sound patterns without assistance. Listen to, evaluate, and reshape each tune while exploring the composition process. A simple click on the MIDI button will save files for later play, or for development of a live performance. There are 30 ready-made tunes to demonstrate musical concepts and moods, and over 120 instruments to choose from. Teachers can customize difficulty levels, shrink the grid size, select instruments, or adjust the tempo to tailor the difficulty level for each student.
