Game Description:Hearing Music, an audible playground of rich sounds, explores the interpretation of music. Designed to include hearing music as a step in the music learning process, this program breaks music down to patterns and levels, from beginner to advanced. Hearing Music gives children the opportunity to train their ears to identify different parts of music, encouraging them to hear the nuances in a melody, the change in a rhythm and the subtleties woven into pieces by famous composers. A computer-adaptive program makes the games progressively harder or easier as the child moves through four different levels per game. When a level is completed, children are treated to a rousing, animated rendition of the Hallelujah chorus from Handel's Messiah.
