  • By combining the software with the included textbook and its music examples you can go as far as you like
  • Includes the Steps to Reading Music series
  • Do you want to learn to hear the difference between different chords? Practica Musica will tell you when you're on the right track
  • Want to learn how to write melody by ear? Practica Musica can invent endless examples for you to practice with, and tell you when you get them right
  • It can perform sophisticated tasks for an advanced student, pointing out errors when writing a chorale in 4 parts, for example
Notation Tools
  • The "composition" activity provides basic notation tools that are perfect for doing a school assignment - write a melody, a chorale, a duet - and you can hear it, print it, save it, export it as a MIDI file
Home or School
  • The included textbook helps you to progress on your own
  • If you're using Practica Musica in a school environment your class will have access to the company's online WebStudents system for storing progress reports or music assignments and communicating with your instructor
"Fat Keys" Keyboard Option
  • Most activities don't require a full keyboard but there is the option of using a shorter keyboard with extra wide keys that are easy to see and play
  • There's also an "enharmonic" (split keys) fat keyboard and a lefthanded fretboard
System Requirements Mac OS X 10.4 or later
Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7

Note: For Windows computers it is recommended that an external "MIDI" sound device be connected if there is interest in doing real-time rhythm tapping activities; for activities that don't involve playing notes in time, built-in sounds are sufficient. On Macs, the built-in sounds are all that is needed even for rhythm tapping, although an external device can be connected if so desired.
