Parents’ Choice Gold Award

NAPPA Gold Award
Parenting Seal of Approval and others.

This computer game gives children an outlet for exploring their own appreciation of music, while sharpening their listening and problem-solving skills and improving understanding of the basic concepts of music. The Nutcracker Music Game is a magical adventure that celebrates music by challenging kids through interactive participation and exciting game play.

The premise of the program is to save the Nutcracker by earning nine golden keys through a series of musical games and activities that teach students about differences between sounds, exercises their memory skills, and increases their music vocabulary.

The Nutcracker Music Game offers exceptional teaching tools, such as the ability to demonstrate, in the classroom, every instrument of the orchestra and its interaction with other musical instruments. But above all it teaches children to love and appreciate music.

The program features a multitude of innovative musical games, puzzles and riddles, as well as an animated Encyclopedia of Musical Instruments, an extensive Listening Room, Tchaikovsky’s biography, the Nutcracker story, the History of the Nutcracker ballet, music trivia and more.

This game is truly phenomenal.  First of all my son has always loved classical music so to have the option of gaming combined with his love for music is a great opportunity.  My daughter has not had as much of an interest in classical music but she loved this.  The game has so many components:

Tchaikovsky’s Biography
The Listening Room
Musical Encyclopedia
The Funky Monkey Game
Music Trivia
Flying Instruments
The Orchestra Game
Children’s Album Game
The Nutcracker Story
The Nutcracker Game
The game we had the most fun with was the NutHouse.  My kids really had to focus on their listening skills and they were thrilled when they selected the correct option and were able to move into the next room.  I love how they can create their own music with different instruments so they can hear the different sounds very clearly.  They can also then add in alternate sounds and practice different ways to combine instruments.  This is truly phenomenal. 
This CD is a great investment for you children.  There are so many activities to choose from – they will be entertained for hours.
