MusicFirst introduces MusicFirst Junior, an easy-to-use online learning management system for teaching elementary music.

“MusicFirst Junior is such a fun platform that learning quickly becomes something students look forward to,” said MusicFirst Director, Dr. Jim Frankel. “It’s also a fantastic resource for educators, as it makes teaching music even more enjoyable. We feel confident that it’ll become a favorite among students and teachers alike.”  

Launching in August, MusicFirst Junior offers award-winning, built-in music apps, including Groovy Music: Shapes, Jungle, and City Create Modes; Groovy Explore; Morton Subotnick’s Music Academy; and an audio recorder that allows students to make simple recordings of their music, with or without a metronome.  

Using iPads, Chromebooks, or any device able to run a standard Web browser, MusicFirst Junior gives elementary students instant access to music-learning tools and learning content relevant to their level, matched with kid-friendly graphics and age-appropriate curriculum.
