This site proved very helpful in allowing my preservice teachers to design
lessons on instrument grouping and sound identification. The other feature that
stood out was the make your own tune section. The one criticism that may be
warranted is that the ability to see the instruments being played would be
beneficial. Otherwise, this was a wonderful experience for my students.
