Instructional Ideas

  1. Teachers can play a high-quality symphony, music video, or recording for their class. As they listen, students can simultaneously view the display on this app to see the keys and Hz being played. Once the recording is finished, teachers can lead a discussion by asking: (1) What did you notice about the keys being played? (2) Were the keys more in or out of sync during this recording? (3) Which keys were played most often? (4) Was there symmetry and/or balance on the display while the recording played?
  2. Teachers can play both a high-quality and low-quality music recordings for students. As students listen to the recordings, they can watch the display on this app. After viewing the display while both recordings played, teachers can have students journal about what they saw as the major difference(s) between the two recordings based on the app’s display.
  3. As students learn to tune an instrument or play a note, they can use this app to monitor their precision.
  4. Students can listen to a classmate play a piece of music and, while they listen, they can view the display on this app. Once the student finishes playing, the students who were listening can give the student feedback about the quality, and they can use this app to inform their feedback.
  5. This app can be used to help students label notes. To do so, a note can be played and students can view the key of the note with this app. This will help students connect the oral sound with its visual representation. In this way, the app then works as a scaffold, and this process can be repeated until students are able to name the key by sound only.
