Schools that teach music have to be encouraged and applauded in these dark days of budget shortfalls and reduction of non-core subjects. I found a piece of software that can make teaching reading music and note recognition much easier. It’s called Smak-A-Note and it turns recognizing notes into a game. Although it works with Windows and Mac computers, the software runs as a small window and not full screen. Students are presented with a note and hear it played and try to bang on moving letters with what looks like a miniature tympani mallet. If it’s correct they get points. There are different levels and a slew of customization options. It costs $30, but there’s a free demo.
