Sample new games that use any MIDI keyboard!

To Get Started:

  1. Turn on your MIDI keyboard. If you have other software programs that use MIDI, please verify that your MIDI is working, then close out of that program.
  2. Turn on your computer speakers and turn your MIDI keyboard volume down all the way.
  3. Choose a game. When the pop-up message asks you to verify the publisher, click "Run."
  4. Play the game.

If the game doesn't respond when you press a MIDI key, find the MIDI Input Test and Troubleshooting section at the bottom of this page. You may need to Check Your MIDI Interface or Update Java.

Each game has up to four levels: Learn (tutorial-introduction) Play (practice) Quiz (mastery); Challenge (beyond Quiz)
