I think that this is a game for people who get mad at losing games cause you get to rate your own performances, exept in mini games. and its not like guitar hero where you have to play the exact notes you can add extras or choose when you want to play them so have fun!

This game is very fun for anyone. Guitar Hero can't compare! This game can last about a century! I hope that people will understand my review.
This game is worth every dollar, i swear! This game is great for both kids and adults!

To enjoy Wii Music to its fullest, you have to think less like a gamer and more like an artist. Guitar Hero and Rock Band allows you to paint in watercolor; Wii Music allows you to use acrylics, pastels, charcoal, inks, crayons, and colored pencils. Instead of focusing solely on guitar, drums, and vocals, Wii Music serves up a buffet of a few dozen musical instruments -- ranging from the more traditional piano and violin, to the ever-popular electric and acoustic guitars, to playful-minded cat and dog noises.

Checking into the game for the first time, you're met with a tutorial that shows the common ways to hold the Wii remote and nunchuck to mimic the instruments you'll use. Don't worry about getting a handle on it all at once, you can access the tutorial at anytime later. Afterward, you'll have access to jam sessions and mini-games. I recommend playing the mini-games first, just for simplicity's sake. And when you're comfortable with those, move on to the jam sessions.

Sessions involve a group of up to six people. After choosing a song and a venue, you'll have to choose from playing Percussion, Melody, Bass, Chord, and Harmony. You may use the instruments already presented to you, or you can substitute in any other instrument you please. Starting the performance, you may choose to play it by ear, or press the minus (-) button to bring up the note guide and play it like any other rhythm game. Unlike other rhythm games, though, Wii Music does not penalize you for deviating from the set. In fact, it is encouraged, to make your own personal track. After finishing it, you may mix your previous performance with a new performance to further personalize your music.

Your ability to motivate yourself and be even a little creative will be your driving factors for how much you get out of Wii Music. If you go in with the intention of making a good-sounding performance and having fun, you'll already have a leg up on those who only want to "finish the game."
