Last week Music Teacher’s Helper attended MTNA Chicago. We met and learn about a lot of amazing tools in the music education space. It’s a lot of fun to chat and learn about all the new digital apps and sites with a complimentary mindset.
If you want to exposure children to arts education, you should know about the Piano Carnival Project. It includes piano performances, stories and art based around Saint-Saëns’ famous composition, Carnival of the Animals. The goal of the project is to provide free, entertaining arts exposure to all, especially children without arts education. In order to reach as many people as possible, they have developed a digital ebook/app which allows for a completely immersive experience. Piano Carnival (downloadable here) is completely free, and includes music videos, interactive animations, dramatic recitation, lessons and much more.
Here’s a 1 minute YouTube demo video showing a few of the ebook functions.
