https://www.apple.com/mac/garageband/ - GarageBand

http://pbskids.org/games/music.html - Great musical site for very young children (early childhood to PreK). For example, the Curious George activity (http://pbskids.org/curiousgeorge/games/splat_symphony/splat_symphony.html) encourages students to make music by splatting paint on a canvas

http://www.incredibox.com - Have your students easily create their own beat-boxing acapella group!

http://www.incredibox.com/version1/ - The first version of Incredibox where the performers all have shirts

http://www.bitesizebeats.com/ - Incredibox and M&Ms team up to create music using M&M cartoon beatboxers. They will require a student to enter their birthday, which if they are too young, they will deny access to the site. This is so that they are marketing responsibly. There is nothing on the site that would be inappropriate. I would suggest projecting this site onto a screen or interactive whiteboard (ie SMART Board), enter the teacher's birthday, and create music together as a class.

http://www.bitesizebeats.com/ - Incredibox and M&Ms combined!

http://buttonbass.com - Similar to incredibox as your students can easily create music with cubes.

The spectrogram will give young students a visual representation of sound and gives them the opportunity to record themselves performing. The chords gives young listeners a visual and audio of major and minor chords on a piano. The sound waves gives you an electronic sound and shows the sound wave of it (click the magnifying button). Kadinsky creates music to abstract art that young students draw. Change the colors to change the sounds. The Melody Maker allows young students to create a monotone melody with a variety of tempos. The Voice Spinner gives young students the opportunity to record a short melody and discover what happens to the sound and tempo when you spin the melody. There are more items included. This is a music lab so the goal is to create with sound. Could be useful for young students to successfully create with sound, to add into a sound unit, or to experiment with sound.

The Rick Astley Remixer lets you use a variety of styles to remix his famous song, Never Gonna Give You Up. Theme lets you experiment with moods of music.
