This is a good basic music site. I think that middle school students could use
this site as well as high school and college students. This site does provide
much in educational value. I do wish that there was more interaction, such as a
question and answer area. But a teacher could use this site, and make up
her/his own set of questions. It gives you a good understanding of
pitch/frequency and rhythm/time. Throughout this site there are highlighted
words which are links to other pages with the meaning of the word that further
give you understanding of it.

Technical Remarks:

You will need Quicktime to listen so some of the musical examples. Otherwise
the site is easy to use.
