Gamifying music learning

Remu The Dog takes you on an adventure to MusicUs World! The journey takes our hero to different environments. Help Remu to find new friends by solving puzzle games or by playing your instrument to complete challenges.

MusicUs World guides students on their journey to the world of music. Through the games the students explore different aspects of music learning – music creation, practising an instrument, theoretical concepts – in an engaging and pedagogically thought out way. The main character in MusicUs World is Remu The Dog, who goes on different adventures solving puzzles and challenges. The student is rewarded for the time spent on practising and for completing the games and levels. Badges and achievements motivate students and show the progress made.

For the teachers, MusicUs World offers new pedagogically designed musical content and tools for their teaching. The games target specific areas of music teaching – scales, improvisation, theory, ensemble work, etc. MusicUs World helps motivate students to learn and practice independently. This leaves more time in classes to concentrate on areas that require or benefit from the teacher’s presence. In MusicUs World the teacher can assign homework easily and follow up the students’ progress and the time spent on practising.
