Educator Resources for One Man Band
This game allows students to create their own one-of-a-kind One Man Band. Students simply drag and drop instruments anywhere on the screen to build a crazy contraption. They can then press Play or Stop to control the music on each instrument. We recommend demonstrating how to click buttons 1, 2, or 3 to switch between different loops and create your tune. This game is a great tool for helping students explore and experiment music, rhythm, beats, and instruments, and can be used by students independently or in pairs.
