Beautiful Music With NY Philharmonic

 Here is a well developed, engaging website that will teach students about instruments of the orchestra, composers and musicians, allows them to create music, hear music, and play games.  This website supports creativity while teaching students about a variety of musical topics.  

 While this website could be used to support a music curriculum, it also supports history, researching, reading, and creativity so more teachers should find it a site to use or share with students.  The site is easy to navigate, as you can see from these screen shots, and offers many engaging opportunities for students. The developers of the site "keep it simple" so even young children will be able to learn on it.  Click to learn about famous composers and hear some of their music.   http://www.nyphilkids.org/gallery/main.phtml?

Kids can take a daily poll on a musical topic and see the poll results.

 Click through the site and see how it might work for your students.  As always, I welcome your comments.
