The Music Scale Teacher for Macintoshis an invaluable computerized music tutor. It uses advanced teaching techniques to accelerate your note reading abilities. It replaces the monotony of memorizing the scales with a thrilling more action packed arcade game. The more notes you shoot down, the more scales you have mastered.

This program compliments Musical Space Invaders. After having achieved a fundamental knowledge of note reading, either with the help of Musical Space Invaders or this program, Scale Teacher will advance you to the next level. It will help you to intuitively know the notes for each key signature. Students will be freed from having to constantly consult the key sign as they struggle to learn a new piece. This knowledge will greatly facility your ability to read and learn music.
The Music Scale Teacher will play a random musical phrase ranging from 1 to 8 notes based on the key, range and note count you have selected. Shoot the notes down by playing the correct note on the piano. Use the mouse or optional midi keyboard to enhance the value of each lesson. Increase the games excitement by turning on the optional note timer. If you don`t shoot the notes down within the given time, they will blow up! There are plenty of special effects that augment the excitement of the game as well as sharpen valuable skills. Turn these features on or off, as you need them. This flexibility allows you to use this program with all ages and levels.
There are two modes of play, single key or multi key mode. In single scale mode, practice each key one at a time. When you become more advanced, switch to multi key mode and review all the keys. The game is logically setup to teach you the keys in a progression from simple to advanced. Just follow the lessons outlined in the Key`s menu and you`re guaranteed to make progress.
Included in this program, is a robust student grades database. Teacher`s can easily track the progress of each student. Print these grades out or post them on the web with the instant HTML feature.
