Learning musical skills through technology generates tremendous enthusiasm among students.  The technology allows students the opportunity to perform, improvise and create music according to their individual tastes.  They now move from the realm of music lover to music maker, opening a new world of imagination to students who might never have been involved in the creation of music.  The sincere intent of the developers of this curriculum is to make the music learning experience interactive and rewarding for both the students and the instructor.
