A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is a great way to teach music education because the program offers interactive lessons that are followed up with fun interactive games. The software is adaptive to the child's learning pace. It's cheaper to purchase from online retailers than from the company's Web site.
Is It Any Good?
Music Ace Deluxe is a new configuration of lessons from two older products: Music Ace and Music Ace 2. It's a shining example of how to make a complicated subject interesting to kids by presenting it in a lively interactive format. When a player has trouble, the software slows down the material and offers help.
It is offered at $79.95 on the company's Web site but is available for $50 at online retailers Amazon.com, JR.com, PCMall.com.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
