Music to your ears

There isn't a lot of music sites or software out there that can get kids making songs as quickly as this site can.

Based on chord progression rather than melody, JamStudio lets your students create music backing tracks, soundscapes and incidental music with the click of a mouse. The system still requires a knowledge of basic chords and chord progressions, but even I can quickly produce a track that doesn't grate on the nerves.

You could use eBeam to demonstrate how to get started on the program and Turningpoint to vote for favourites or what should be included into the mix.
