Interactive Keyboards and Toolbar
1. Throughout The Main Lessons and course components, you will find interactive components that will allow you to hear the music and serve as a learning tool. Anytime you see a keyboard that demonstrates a topic, such as a scale or interval, you can click on the red, green, or blue keys to play the sound(s).
2. A toolbar that consist of four small square button and is situated on the top right of the interactive keyboards is particularly important. By hovering your mouse over each button, you can find the name and its purpose. You will find the ability to show or hide the musical structure or interval formula for all the intervals, chords, and scales, and the ability to show or hide the names of the notes.
3. For scale animations, you will find a button on the toolbar that will allow you to play the scale descending or ascending, and with chords you will find a button to play arpeggio and a button to play the chord note by note. The toolbar is very important and useful when learning scales, intervals, and chords, as well as when experimenting with these elements.
“Click Here to Play” Interactive Animations
1. Throughout the course, you will also find interactive components that will ask you to “Click Here To Play”. When you click on the box, the video of the sounds will play and the chord(s), interval(s), or scale(s), will be demonstrated on the keyboard.
2. You will notice that you will find the toolbar above the keyboard to hide the musical structure or interval formula for all the intervals, chords, and scales, the ability to show or hide the names of the notes, etc. You can also replay the structures or move through them one by one using the play buttons and the left and right arrow keys below the keyboard.
