— We all hear and read about the World Wide Web, but how can it be used? Some people are finding out they can use a computer to learn music.

Music Ace 2comes as a CD-ROM and includes a helpful booklet. However, when users open the program, a music maestro guides you along.

Learning is interactive using the drag and drop method. Anyone can build a tune with notes from a variety of instruments like a grand piano, or perhaps a trumpet.

There are dozens of lessons and each includes hands-on mouse practice.

Music Ace 2 may be a bit advanced for beginners, particularly children. It is fun and users can use a MIDI-capable keyboard with it, making the program a very effective teaching tool.

"What can you do on the World Wide Web?" is the name of a site that a New York man has developed that really shows the power of the Web.

There are calculators of all kinds, and many of them are graphic. Users can check out dozens of Java-powered graphics to see how they work.

These sites and tools are just a few things that you can do on the Web.
