Sibelius has announced a new music education product, Groovy Jungle.

Groovy Jungle is the second part of the groundbreaking Groovy Music series of education software for 5- to 11-year-olds. The application will be on show at BETT 2007 (10-13 January at Olympia, London).

Music can be added to a composition by recording from a keyboard or other MIDI instrument.

Groovy Jungle casts children into a jungle adventure that aims to help them understand, learn and compose music. It supports all elements of different music curriculums for 7- to 9-year-olds.

The Groovy Music software series aims to ensure that teachers can teach music easily, whether or not they themselves are able to read music.
