Flashcard style games (many customisable!) for music teachers
A collection of online music games ideal for helping students practice note naming, interval reading, steps and skips – or even musical signs using the in-built scribble pad! Music teachers can drag notes up or down the stave into position, making these games ideal for students who have only learnt a couple of notes as well as those who have learnt the whole stave.
Adding engagement and fun to music lessons!

Swim down the river as a mummy in ‘Pharaoh Fred’ or dare to enter the mine in ‘Melody Miner’ in these flashcard style online games. Perfect for improving note reading.
As a teacher the drag and drop notes are incredible! I love how I can tailor it to the range of notes a beginner knows, or focus on a particular set of notes that are recent and relevant.
