MusiCan® is designed to foster personal, social, intellectual and physical development of learners. The coordination of mind and body is achieved through singing action songs, playing singing games, tapping rhythms, moving to music and playing in time while simultaneously listening to others, following directions or reading from notation. The interactive cross-curricular music literacy product is packed with animation, games, colors and sounds to stimulate, entertain and teach children of all ages and abilities.
