“Describe That Tune” combines the fun of a timed “Name that Tune” style game with the cognitive twist of musical style analysis.
Students must guide the “notes” of a song to the appropriate staff that describes the the texture or tone of a given song. The quicker the answer, the higher the students score.
The game features six levels, timed sessions which challenge the students to stretch their music comprehension and expand their analysis skills every time they play.
This Flash-based game was easily re-purposed from the previous games “Jazz By Ear” and “Phun with Phonetics” by swapping out the interaction’s mp3s, and making a few minor tweaks to the Actionscript.
