Product Description
Making Music is the first true composing space for children. Imagine an infinitely-manipulable art program for the ears. Making Music presents the components of music visually and aurally, so kids can bring all their senses to bear. It is a program for children of any age, and is intended to let children experience what coposing music is like before embarking on formal music education. As a pioneer in electronic music and interactive computer music systems, composer Morton Subotnick built it from the ground up so that it would be completely interactive and totally fun. Making Music is a great introduction to different kinds of instruments, tempo, melody, rhythm and sound.

5An old favorite remains the best of its kind!, Apr 20, 2023
As a third grade teacher, I had this product in my classroom for years, until one day it inevitably got lost. I have been looking for a new copy for a while, and was glad to find it available on Amazon. It is, in my opinion, the best program of its type. The concept is very easy, children paint in a KID PIX type of format onto a white board, and that painting is then translated into music. If you draw at the top of the screen you will have a high note, at the bottom a low note. The longer you draw the same pitch horizontally the longer the note will be held. The simplicity makes it accessible to kids as young as kindergarten, but there's lots of features that make it riveting for older kids and adults as well. You have a wide variety of instrument to "draw" your music with, and there are lots of options that allow kids to experience their compositions in different ways. Hear your opus backwards or learn what it sounds like if it were flipped upside down. This is a program that people of all ages will enjoy (it was one of everyone's favorites on parent night). Sometimes simpler really is superior, and this program is a perfect example.
