    • What Teachers Say

    • Motivating! Students were fascinated by and loved singing with the program.

    • Accuracy and motivation have gone through the roof with students who used it regularly.

    • Finally, a scientific way to measure/assess a student’s ability to sing in tune!

    • Some students came back again and again to try to improve their score.

    • Even shy students were willing to sing.

    • The software surprised many of my students who had been told by either a family or a friend “you can't sing". They were pleasantly surprised to find out that they couldsing and were very good at it too! The software fostered a lot of pride in my students.

    • The families loved the Sing-Along.


    • Developing Singing in Third-Grade Music Classrooms: The Effect of a Concurrent-Feedback Computer Game on Pitch-Matching Skills

    • Dr. Andrew Paney, University of Mississippi

    • Ann C. Kay, Center for Lifelong Music Making

    • 2,021 third grade students; 30 music teachers.

    • Students who practiced 1-5 times with the software made significantly greater increases than those who were merely assessed.

    • Students who used both staff and graph views showed greater improvement than those who just used one view.

    • Boys improved more than girls (although they had lower pre- and post- scores).

    • Real-time, visual feedback helped students improve their singing accuracy
