At last there is a product for the Amiga computer where young
children can have fun learning about music! WindShadow Software has
introduced "Making Music with Bertie Bunny". This is a product that
is only available for the Commodore Amiga computer. It fully
employs the multimedia capabilities of the computer.
There are many features to enhance your enjoyment:
- Fun for children of all ages. Even a 2 year old can "Bang Keys"
to control Bertie. Bertie Bunny will automatically move from
place to place on the display. The child can simply bang on the
keys to cause Bertie to choose an instrument or tune.
Older children can use the mouse. This makes it quicker to make
selections and helps them to develop fine motor skills.
- Learn to recognize the sound of various musical instruments.
- Learn to recognize various musical tunes from one or more of 4
different parts: the melody, a counterpoint to the melody,
an obbligato accompaniment or a rhythmic accompaniment.
- Hear how different instruments sound in combination with each

Installer utility. The Installer program is supplied
under license from Commodore.
