Ed Tech Tools: Music Fonts

Recently, a friend whom I met through my Orff Levels in Singapore shared how she could now use consistent images for Kodaly and Orff learning with music fonts. I discovered the following paid resource:

Note-able Font – http://mymusicalmagic.blogspot.my/2014/07/music-notation-solutions-note-able-font.html

I think that it’s actually very cool!

I’ve been using Sibelius for my music works and also classroom related materials and I think this is another good improvement and development towards how music teachers can present their work.

I also took the liberty of Googling for free music fonts that we might be able to use without paying. [If you are as resource-weak as me, free stuff is a joy!]

I like to DIY in some ways and I wondered how these people came up with their own fonts.

Lo and behold…
