Here's an on-screen music theory resource with explanations, descriptions, and on-screen quizzes that range from the simple to quite challenging. This one works better as a review and practice tool than as a self-study, but there's surprising depth to the presentations on all aspects of music theory. Well worth a visit.

We were truly impressed with this little site offering Java-based music theory tutorials. The exercises are "for real" allowing students to practice note recognition, speed reading, scale building, etc., and the java coding really works! The sound reinforcement and adjustable design of the exercises enables students to use these independently for both elementary and more advanced practice. This one's a real find for those teaching theory and harmony.

There aren't many good sites for non-readers. Here's a Flash-enhanced site that lets young students match musical instruments with the sounds they make and keeps score of the results. You'll need to explain the directions to the child, but from there students can work independently. Teachers will find this one a nice music activity for Kindergarten or first graders. The sounds from this game will let parents know their child is using the computer safely.
