Phun With Phonetics

Phun With Phonetics

Borrowing its game engine from an earlier challenge game ‘Jazz By Ear’, Phun With Phonetics helps students practice visual recognition of the symbols that make up the International Phonetic Alphabet. The students hear a sound clip representing an IPA symbol and must steer the chattering teeth to the correct symbol before the clock runs out.

The game loads sounds randomly, and offers increasing levels of cognitive difficulty to help students throughout the entire semester.

Circular Breathing

Circular Breathing

This learning object steps students through a very difficult breathing technique which helps perfect students’ playing. Circular breathing allows a wind or brass musician to hold a note indefinitely while still being able to breathe.

The complex procedure has eight steps. Students can step through video explanations of each step while seeing patterns of airflow muscle movement.
