“Music Lessons I combines music theory and ear training in a program that is easy to use, comprehensive, educationally proven, and so flexible that it works with students over a wide range of ages, musical abilities, and learning styles. It will help any music student learn and improve the skills and concepts that are essential to understanding music and playing an instrument,” said MiBAC president John Ellinger.

Music Lessons II is the second volume in the Music Lessons series. Music Lessons II is recommended for intermediate to advanced musicians, ages twelve and up. The program’s scope and flexibility make it effective with a wide range of ages, learning styles, and educator preferences. Because of its open ended design, it’s easily integrated into any music curriculum.

Priced at $149, Music Lessons II version 1.1 for Mac OS X is available now from music software retailers or directly from MiBAC. The software is also available in Lab Five Packs ($447 MSRP) and Site Licenses ($999 MSRP). An upgrade path is available for previous owners of the program. The software is delivered on a hybrid CD-ROM disc containing theWindows, Macintosh Classic, and Macintosh OS X versions.

“What I like best about MUSIC LESSONS II is the way it integrates all four areas of musical learning into one program. It develops the ability to recognize chords visually, write chords in notation, play chords on a piano or guitar, and identify chords by listening. It’s the most comprehensive program available for teaching and learning chords and harmony,” said MiBAC president John Ellinger.
