"MELODY - MATCH: JAZZ MUSIC"

is a Concentration type game utilizing orchestral excerpts. Players receive points by finding two matching aural excerpts. Below is a draft of what the game board would look like but not the final product. After finding a match, players are taken to additional screens to learn about the song title, its composer and when it was written. Melody-Match focuses more on familiarizing the player with well known Jazz melodies and associating them with the composer. Enhanced images of the music score and composer would appear with a brief bio and other pertinent information about the selection.
