Groovy Shapes: The first program in the award-winning Groovy Music series (ages 5 and older). Teaching music has never been so easy, or so much fun! Groovy Shapes is an exciting music program for elementary school students. Fun to use, Groovy Shapes teaches the basics of sound, rhythm, pitch and composition using pictures and animation. Students love Groovy Shapes. It guides them with a simple voiceover and lets them create their own music as well as carry out directed activities, so there's plenty of room for creativity. In fact, Groovy Shapes is so compelling that once students start making music; they just won't want to stop! And best of all, it's incredibly easy for both teachers and students. In the Explore section, students are guided aurally through a series of progressive musical exercises and games, which teach them the fundamentals of music. In the Create section, students can put into practice what they've learned by creating their own music. Shapes are used to represent elements of music such as rhythms, melodies and chords. As your chosen character walks across the screen, the shapes play their sounds. A library of preset sounds is included, which children can simply drag onto the screen to build up their musical creation. They can then play back their piece, edit it, or even see the elements displayed as music notation.
