Fantastic resource from Musedlab that allows students to play-along with YouTube videos using their QWERTY keyboard.  There are some sample songs already on the website, alternatively you can copy in any YouTube video and select the appropriate scale and instrument to play-along.  Great for learning parts or having a go at improvisation.  Try with a 12-bar blues track from YouTube and ask students to practice improvisation over a pentatonic scale!

Ideal for KS2, 3 & 4.
