Inspired by Wikipedia, a compendious user-managed site about music.
Grade Level: 6-8, 9-12


Musipedia is a searchable, editable, and expandable collection of tunes, melodies, and musical themes.
The site is designed to be user-friendly. There is a navigation bar at the top of the page as well as links embedded in the main text. A very useful option is the "Music Search" function, located at the top navigation bar.

Music enthusiasts, teachers, and students will find something of interest at this site. Anyone who registers can add, delete, or edit the compositions. Registration is free. The entries can contain sheet music, MIDI files, and text that describes the work and its composer. The large database contains thousands of classical melodies, popular melodies, and folk song melodies, as well as many national anthems. The database can be searched by melody (entering the notes on a virtual piano or whistling/singing the tune into the computer), melodic contour (Parsons Code), or rhythm (tapping the beat using your keyboard). Included are discussion forums for discussing site improvements or seeking help from other users.
