Mussila Musical monster adventure – Children’s library
Mussila is a music game for children in which they learn the basics in music – no experience required!
Join the Mussila band on their musical journey to help them find their lost instruments and costumes. Based on a musical curriculum, Mussila is a fun and creative game that gives kids the basic skills and instruments to play and create their own music.
Travel with the Mussila band and participate in jam sessions with musical monsters, taking place on mountainsides surrounded by mystical creatures. The player progresses through skill building levels, by recognising different instruments and defining rhythms and melodies.
Mussila is based on a thoroughly planned curriculum, made to encourage the child’s self-esteem through accomplished and fun play. It is a zero-violence and gender-neutral adventure in which your child learns musical understanding it can build on for life.
