Music Tech Teacher is a site developed by a music technology teacher, Ms. Karen Garrett, in Birmingham, Alabama. On Music Tech Teacher you can find dozens of online music lessons, quizzes, and games designed to help elementary school students learn to read music, learn to play music, and learn about music technology. Take a look at the piano practice section of Music Tech Teacher to find some basic piano lessons that can be learned using just a keyboard or mouse. Or explore the quiz section about musicians to test your knowledge of people like Ellington, Joplin, or Gillespie.

Applications for Education
Music Tech Teacher could be an excellent resource for teachers looking to find some music activities that students can use independently at home or in the classroom. Don't have enough pianos or keyboards to go around? Use the online piano practice to introduce students to some of the basics before they take a turn at the real thing.
