This is a great project for introducing students to basic musical notes. It flows really well and is highly appropriate for the grade level. The explanations are helpful and provide students with easy ways to remember how long to hold each note. Buttons easily take students to the next slide when answering correctly and when incorrect allows students to go back and review the different notes. This lesson also includes a Voki character and voice on each slide, which would make this lesson accessible to a variety of learners and learning styles.

Technical Remarks:

I was unable to play the voice on the Voki character on the slides or hear the sound on the second to last slide. I am not sure if this is due to the fact that I am using an older version of PowerPoint.

Very nice way to have students learn about music.  I like how you incorporated clips into your final slide before having students try to play the sequence.  Did you think of adding questions where you gave students an audio clip and asked them what type of note it was?  This may help with students who have difficulty seeing what is on the screen.  Giving the students the phrases or words to go with the note length is a nice touch to help with understanding.

Technical Remarks:

Audio clip didn't work for me - could you add where you got the clip from if it is available online?
