Music teachers who need to make percussion loops for electronic or computer-based music will find this free online "sound machine" an interesting approach. Novices will likely find the interface confusing, but those who know what they want can quickly create percussion loops using a variety of instrument sounds.

We were truly impressed with this little site offering Java-based music theory tutorials. The exercises are "for real" allowing students to practice note recognition, speed reading, scale building, etc., and the java coding really works! The sound reinforcement and adjustable design of the exercises enables students to use these independently for both elementary and more advanced practice. This one's a real find for those teaching theory and harmony.

There aren't many good sites for non-readers. Here's a Flash-enhanced site that lets young students match musical instruments with the sounds they make and keeps score of the results. You'll need to explain the directions to the child, but from there students can work independently. Teachers will find this one a nice music activity for Kindergarten or first graders. The sounds from this game will let parents know their child is using the computer safely.

Use this site on a projector or interactive whiteboard to discuss and informally assess prior knowledge as you start your study of John Phillip Sousa. What is unique about the site is that it has audio of many of Sousa's compositions, which would be great to sample after a unit on his work. This would be extremely useful for history or music teachers.

In the Classroom

The most usable portion of this site is actually the picture seen on the main page. Rarely are teachers going to need to go in on n in-depth exploration of Jazz, but the picture can be used in a visual discovery activity. Open the image on the interactive whiteboard or projector, and have students discuss what they observe, infer and predict about the image. There is a zoom tool that can provide greater detail. Guide the students towards why this image is significant, why someone would take it, how important Jazz was in this community, etc.
