In the Chair – real instruments, real music

A great Web 2.0 for children site!

In the Chair is music education software that lets you practice by performing with professional musicians, bands and renowned orchestras. Be part of the band – hear the other musicians as you watch the video from your chosen spot – and perfect the piece with the feedback you receive as you play. With In the Chair you practice with real musicians, playing real music (not Midi) using your own instrument!

Lots of widgets and Web 2.0 thingies to play with. Collaboration in the ultimate collaborative sector (making music). Very sweeeeet.
