Notation Station
Notation Station is a powerful tool for music educators because it allows teachers to use the Internet to distribute individualized lesson plans and compositions to students. Simply create a musical lesson plan or exercise, upload it into the Notation Station and it is available for your students to access, hear, and modify. Your students then return the completed exercise back to you for your evaluation.
