To hear the MIDI files, a plug-in is required to hear them. The standard Windows media player is barely adequate. A preferred MIDI player is the crescendo plug-in.
Pupils could use a sequencer to layer the different patterns in activity 2.
Pitched percussion instruments such as keyboards and glockenspiels.
Further information for teachers/parents
