Welcome to Mr. Miller's Amsterdam Elementary School
Music Resources Page!
3rd and 4th grade...
For Younger kids...
Recommended SoftwareThis is some of the stuff we use in class!
I suggest trying out free demo versions first, usually available at the manufacturers website or at download.com
Music Ace & Music Ace 2 - Music theory, concepts, skills. Even keyboard basics.
Midisaurus series More for younger kids (k-2). Many titles in this series.
Making Music Great software, create music, games, all kinds of fun.
EZ-DJ drag and drop to create really cool music. Should be available in several styles of music. Older kids will LOVE this! I dont have this one in school but it is awesome!There are also many titles that can teach piano if you have a midi keyboard!
More for Parents...
Music related and just plain cool....
If I want second grade students to see something neat when we learn dinosaur music we go to one of the best sites out there www.discovery.com. This is the website for the discovery channel. ENDLESS info about many things here!
When first grade students were learning their space show last year we looked at www.space.com. Video, pictures, whatever, if it has something to do with space youll find it there. www.nasa.gov is another great one, find the Apollo gallery in the NASA history section and show the kids video of Neil Armstrong walking on the moon!
