ClickScholar MaryAnna Cashmore recommended this website that offers all
kinds of free music resources, lessons, and drills. When you get to the
site look under "Free Tools and Resources" in the center of the screen to
*Rhythm Gym - Get interactive practice in counting rhythm and time
signatures in written music. Click on "Quarter Note Quest" or "Eighth Note
Challenge" and then follow the instructions that will take you through each
exercise until you gain proficiency. You'll see a piece of music. The idea
is to clap out the rhythm correctly. Once you do, you can listen to a midi
file and hear it played correctly. You can also print out the music and
practice on a keyboard offline. Once you've completed all of the exercises
satisfactorily, you can print out a certificate of achievement.
*Chord Wizard - This interactive guide helps you find and learn all of the
chords by displaying them on a keyboard.
*Scales Manual - Learn all 24 major and harmonic minor scales with the help
of this tool that allows you to see them presented on keyboards.
*Sightreading Genie - Get over 100 exercises to test your sightreading
*Music Crosswords - Have fun solving these puzzles that test your knowledge
of music and musicians.
There is lots of great, free content here that will help music students and
