You can play on your phone or tablet, even your computer, with some of the exciting musical experiments by Chrome Music Lab. Chrome Music Lab is, in their own words, “a website that makes learning music more accessible through fun, hands-on experiments”.
Teachers have been using it in their classrooms to explore music with their students. You can make your own songs and sounds with many of the interactive elements of the various “labs”. And if you are a coder you can even build your own to add to the lab. Here is a quick look at some of our favourites.
