Game 1: Note Name Game (Drag the correct note name under each note to spell words. Try to get all 10 words correct!)
Game 12: Note Teacher (this game uses two 'mini staffs' - click the correct keys to match the notes on the left staff. Try to get all 20 notes right, before the notes counter counts down to 0! If you keep going it will count up to 31 more notes, but won't show your score at the very end. If you wait too long, it will play a new note for you.)
Game 38: Note Names (Use your own timing as this game won't stop until you click "Stop Drill." For example, choose 2 minutes for yourself, then click "Stop Drill" and check your score. Suggestion:   change the settings to include Treble Clef only, Bass Clef only, spaces only, lines only, etc.)
