Want to improve your typing skills while learning some classical violin tunes? If so, then this is definitely the game for you! Amusix Violin is a fun, interactive online typing game where you have to type to play the notes of various musical pieces. You don’t have to be an expert violinist, or even an expert typist – you can just have fun as you go along. Your violin tutor – ‘Viola’ – has prepared a number of good, old-fashioned tunes for you to learn – and all you have to do is type along with each note.
The pieces increase in tempo and speed as you progress, so you’ll need quick fingers to succeed. This cool musical instrument-based game is perfect for anyone looking to improve their typing skills in an interesting way, or anyone who is a fan of classical music. Think you’ve got the typing talent to be the next Vivaldi? Grab your bow – flex your fingers, and let’s type!
How to Play: There are three different game modes – Normal, Free Play and Melody Editor. To activate Normal Mode, click the Start button at the top of the main menu screen. In each level, your teacher – Viola – sets you a task of playing / typing along to a famous violin tune. Use the allocated keys on your computer keyboard to play the notes. The corresponding keys that you have to press appear along the bottom of the game screen. When you press the key – the note plays for as long as you hold the key down. Release the key when the letter tile is filled all the way up in green color.
Keep going until the end of the musical piece to see your score. If you do well, you progress to the next song. Each of the 30 increasingly difficult levels has more complicated note changes and a faster rhythm. In Free Play Mode, you can simply play as many notes as you like – your computer keyboard is basically transformed into a violin! In Melody Editor, you can create your own tunes, then play along with them, just as in Normal Mode.
