Drum Machines can be a wonderful teaching aid!

28 05 2009


If you a music educator and have a computer, I am sure you already use many of the popular music softwares to assist students learning the ins and outs of music performance. If a drum machine is not part of your arsenal of software try downloading a Drum Machine like Hydrogen to help students with their understanding of time values and drums.

It was originally written as an app for UNIX but it is now also available for MAC and WINDOWS and is a free download at their site. The app itself is a full featured drum machine that does exactly what you would expect these days from a drum machine. If you are a teacher why not try using it to clarify how not values and rhythms tie together? It can be a lot of fun for everyone. Check it out for free at http://www.hydrogen-music.org/?p=main
