Music students or anyone interested in learning to read music can use the games in How2readmusic to train their ears and mind through melodic and rhythmic dictation, and exercises in reading and writing music notation.

Rhythmic and Melodic dictation games allow students to become familiar with music notation, while the very user-friendly composing program gives students a chance to try their hand at composing!

The chapters on Music Theory cover all the basic information that a student can learn without the trained ear of a teacher present. Music Teachers can use How2readmusic.com as a resource that their students can use to practice elements of theory outside of precious lesson time.
