There are a number of online resources that can further assist students in their study of music. The following websites will allow students to continue to learn during times when they are not able to be present in school:
- MusicTheory.net Lessons – Students may learn about the structure of music. This will aid them in reading, and eventually, writing their own music!
- MusicTheory.net Exercises – Students may practice what they're learning in the lessons on MusicTheory.net.
- MusicTheory.net Tools – There are some fun utilities here for students to play with, including an online keyboard that can be used to help students to learn how to play the piano.
- Noteflight.com – This is a free website (although you can register for a Premium account) that can be used to start writing your own music! It's not what I use to create rehearsal tracks and write arrangements of songs for students, nor is it as powerful as what I use, but it's free, and it can help you get started on your own compositional journey!
- Sight-Reading Factory – This is the website that I use to help students to learn how to look at a piece of music and be able to sing it without assistance. This is a skill that not only is important for singers, but it's important for them to practice if they're going to get really good at it. The login that I have created is: firstname.lastname@example.org; password: hansonsings.
- Past Sight-Reading Exams, SR Study Materials, SR Criteria
- Chrome Music Lab – There are a variety of tools for students to play around with and explore a bit of what music and computers can do together!
Apps to Use on your Phone
- Perfect Ear (Android | iPhone) – You can practice recognizing music by sight and by sound!
- Music Tutor (Android | iPhone) – Exercises that will help you to learn how to read music.
