Once you are logged in, there are thousands of things to do. This site works much better when you use a computer (some games are not available for iPad). In each game, you can choose your level (and even what kinds of notes you want to use). Some of you who take music lessons outside of school can really be challenged here!

If you're anything like me, you love playing instruments. With all of our favorite classroom instruments stuck at school, I found some ways for you to make your own! Each of the instruments will be made from things you probably have at home. If you don't have something, get creative! Each person in your family can make a different instrument and make a band!
