MiDisaurus is an Emma Award winner, the most prestigious international interactive media award. Judges, in the category of "Education & Home Learning - up to 11 years," commented that "MiDisaurus is very simple to use and extremely user friendly. The series is comprehensive and thoroughly engaging. It is the best possible computer software to teach music to this age group." Midisaurus is designed to be user-friendly and extremely appealing to children. It uses pictures, in association with musical examples, to help the child relate graphics or animated sequences with sound. All instructions are given both on the screen and read aloud, making the product easy to use for non-readers. MiDisaurus develops real musical skills in music fundamentals, music theory, eartraining and an understanding of musical form and history. Students begin with simple concepts (Loud/Soft, Same/Different); continue to basic concepts (Note & Rest Values, Notes on The Grand Staff); and then to more advanced concepts (Scales, Chords, Progressions). Creative and entertaining games make drills fun and easy. MiDisaurus is designed for use with or without a MIDI keyboard; an interactive on-screen keyboard helps children work with concepts such as scales, intervals and chords. Use of a MIDI keyboard with your computer adds additional functionality to the program. MiDisaurus keeps a printable "grade report" on each child, making the program ideal for home, school or private teacher use. The hybrid CD-ROMs work with nearly all current MAC and Windows computers.
