Mission to Magmamon

This is really hard to master, but is AWESOME to play!! Hitting the right key on the keyboard, will fire off at the notes coming on the stave lines. BUT the notes split from 4 beats, to 2 to 1, to 1/2 before they are destroyed!  Students will learn to be quick or be beaten lol...PS- please tell them, that I got absolutely demolished in my first round.

Jayde Musica Music Theory Game

Set this game to 'easy', and ask students to use their 'cheat sheets' (found in their folders at the back) to help at first.  This game has a pretty simple format -  notes on the staff slide along and the student needs to select what note it is before it reaches the other side of the screen.  It's educational, but might be boring after a while.. If the student likes it... Yay!  If not, move on!
