Play for Your Life!!! is an action-adventure game where students ages 7-12 must work together to overcome obstacles, battle monsters, and make progress in the story. Every action in the game is represented by a solo piece of music that the student plays from their own repertoire. The class is intended to help students build comfort with performing, maintain a musical repertoire, and have fun with their classmates in a cooperative learning environment.
