Wii Music Gets Ready For Class

Almost as heartwarming as the story about the senior citizens enjoying the Wii at retirement communities, Nintendo has just announced that it is partnering with The National Association for Music Education to bring Wii Music into the classroom.

Spanning across 51 cities, Nintendo will have music teachers use the game to help children get enthused about music and teach them about song structure, rhythm, and tempo.

I think as long as Wii Music is used in a manner that complements music lessons, then I'm all for it, but used solely on its own, not so much. That's like giving a class a Wii Fit to play with and calling it gym class.

Lol My children DO play the Wii in their gym class on occasion.But they can only play Wii Tennis. Wii Music didn't seem like it would be much of a teaching tool. I lost interest fairly quickly but my kids loved it.

Not a substitute for an instrument but fun. I want to get this for my husband (have you seen the Rev Run demonstration??). My guy has his musical instrument he practices on set up pretty close to his wii console. I could get on board with this software.
