The musical examples are now all in Flash format, so the process of listening is
much easier amnd less disruptive. This comment is from the author.

I think this site is definitely appropriate for college level students taking
music theory classes. I believe that some of it could be used by upper level
high school students serious about a career in music. It is easy to maneuver
through the site. I think this is a very educational oriented website and would
work well alongside a music theory class. It allows you to look at musical
works and analyze them. It also has a question and answer part as well. It has
interactive exercises that allow you to work with intervals and chords. The
music theory reference is wonderful allowing you to learn about scales, chords,
intervals, and harmony.

Technical Remarks:

I really like that the site can be viewed in English or Spanish. You do need
Quicktime to listen to the music examples. On my computer it opens up another
window to play the Quicktime music and you are not able to see the actual music
then. There are no other problems with the site.
