Over the next several weeks, come join us as we count down to the release of the 2022-23 Ultimate Free Music Tech Resource Guide (coming July 2022) by taking a peek at several of our very favorite new additions highlighted here on the blog!
Every once and a while you find a tech resource that makes you wonder how you taught without it. Doctor Musik is one of those sites! Created by music educator, Trending songs this week Thierry Simard of Montreal, Canada, Doctor Musik has a variety of games and apps created to help students get familiar with musicianship skills.
In this blog, I’ll highlight some of Doctor Musik’s games and activities as well as several ways to use them in your music classroom.

Aquarium is a game focused on students identifying absolute pitch names by moving the letter appearing on each fish to the correct line or space of the staff.
Staff Dungeon is an interactive absolute pitch naming game that requires note naming skills and strategy to collect treasure and keys as you maneuver to gain access to the next level.
Rhythm Practice Activities & Games
Rhythm Decryptor is a simple rhythm identification game that asks you to listen to an audio sample and select the correct rhythmic notation.

Sea of Rhythms is a teacher-led game that allows students to clap rhythms individually or as a class. There is also an opportunity to add instruments during game play.
Together you travel and discover the treasure!
