The Nutcracker Music PC Game - Review



Classical music is loved by people of all ages, including children. With the Nutcracker Music Game for PC, your children will interact with Tchaikovsky's holiday classic through exciting games and puzzles that will teach them a new love and appreciation for music. As they try to save the Nutcracker, children will practice their listening skills, memory skills and and music vocabulary skills.
The Nutcracker Music Game shows children every single orchestra instrument, how it sounds and how it interacts with the other instruments. Designed for ages 4-10 years, the game includes many different activities including games, puzzles, stories, riddles, trivia, history and more. I sat my four year old daycare boy down at the computer to play and as soon as the music started playing, my toddlers crowded in to watch and learn along with him. He played for over 30 minutes, easily navigating through the screens and even pointing out and naming the oboe and saxophone for the younger kids. As a preschool teacher, I can easily see the many ways I can use this to expand my older students' musical knowledge.
The Nutcracker Music Game has won several awards, including the Parenting Seal of Approval, the NAPPA Gold Award, and the Parent's Choice Gold Award. Dr. Larry Scripp, Ed.D, Chair of Music-in-Education and the Research Center for Learning through Music, New England Conservatory says, "The best software I've seen to date or stimulating the musical imagination… Sophisticated in its design and content, Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker offers exciting adventures in musical listening and problem solving that are both irresistible and educational."
