Instrument Configuration

If you play an instrument, let Dolphin Don know. He'll tailor your course of study to your needs. After all, the first notes a flute player learns are different from the first notes a clarinet player learns (not to mention tuba)! If you don't play an instrument, don't worry. Choose the default setting.

Learn Mode, Play Mode, and Compete Mode

Each lesson of each game includes Learn Mode, Play Mode, and Compete Mode.   Learn Mode introduces the musical concepts for each lesson.  Play Mode quizzes the student on the musical concepts.  Compete Mode allows two players (or two teams) to compete head-to-head.

Score Keeping

Dolphin Don's Music School keeps track of scores for an unlimited number of players -- suitable for classroom use!
