I found this to be a beneficial tool for teaching students about sonata allegro form.  As a visual learner it helped me to be able to “see” where each of the sections of the song begins.  By highlighting the sections as it goes along, students who are weak at reading notation were able to follow along even if they had trouble processing the notes as quick as the song’s tempo.  The ability to pause and point to the sections on the computer display was quite beneficial to class discussions. 

Technical Remarks:

It would have been beneficial to have a fast forward or rewind option.  It would have been helpful to be able to repeat a section that was causing trouble for students.  Also, it would have been useful to be able to skip ahead to a certain measure number or at the least to jump to the next section so students would be able to hear different sections independently.

This visual aid is a helpful tool in introducing the concept of Sonata Form.  Users can see the progression of the form visually (via colorful bars that move with the music and a basic diagram at the bottom of the screen) even as they hear the piece unfold aurally.  It is clear enough for students to access individually; however, I would suggest incorporating the page in a classroom situation to encourage more specific engagement with the form.  Although there are some aspects of the presentation that may be lacking (no use of harmonic relationships via Roman numerals, for example), this provides the opportunity to encourage user participation.  Students could be asked to supply cadential information or chord relationships based on what they hear and see already.

Technical Remarks:

As was mentioned in the peer review, it is difficult to maneuver through the page at times as the mouse points are small and tricky to find.  Also, the quality of the score is fuzzy when projected on a large screen.
