Listen to the Compositions

Use the Compare Animals menu in the sidebar to see your alligator (or koala or bunny …) composition alongside similar compositions from other schools.

Below that you'll find the Compare Motions menu. Here you will see all the compositions for each motion grouped together.

And below that is the Find Your School menu. Use it to see all your school's compositions.

(These menues are in the footer on phones and tablets.)
