Summary: I've always wanted to be able to read music and I love this because its fun too.Its actually much better than I thought it would be and there's lots of content. I haven't even looked at all of it yet. Fantastic value.
American terminology makes this useless to British kids

Summary: I bought this for my 8 yo son who is taking music lessons. I have to drag him to do his theory book and thought a game might = practice through play. However, the terms used are American and not appropriate for him. It uses do, re, mi instead of A B C and quarter, eighth and sixteenth notes instead of crotchet, quaver etc. I've described it to his teacher tonight and she suggests not to use it.
Summary: This is a fun game BUT don't expect it to help you with your music theory if you are a UK music student - it's in "American" and they use different names and terms for bits of theory. Maybe I should design a DS game for grade 5 theory - after all loads of us have to do it!
Summary: After waiting for it (only took less than 2 days! wow!:), I was quite excited to be getting this game. Apart from me thinking it was accidentally dispatched as second hand as when you press the enjoy game buttons it seemed to already have rankings on the games?:/ - With the name "AAA"...
Summary: This game is great for anyone old or young who wants to learn to read music. I am 61 and tried to learn piano when I was young but never got the hang of reading the notes fast enough. This game gives you plenty of instructions on how to read and recognise notes and the tests are addictive as you want to improve each time. It does have one down side for me. The background music! I have to turn it off but at least you can! Good game.
Summary: I was soooo looking forward to this game, as i've always wanted to learn how to read music. However I didn't get past the first couple of lessons, as they are accompanied by THEM MOST insanely IRRITATING 'TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE STAR!!' plinky piano music! aaaaaaargh! SO annoying! it's a real shame as it would have probably been a good game. I know I could turn the volume down, but this is a music game so i'd be constanly fiddling with the sound.
