Wii Music is the finest.

Ever wanted to play the trumpet? How about the guitar? In Wii Music you get to play just about every instrument that has been made. Heck you can even "Clap", "Cheer", and use "Cats & Dogs". You can make your music anyway you want!
At the beginning of the game you are greeted with a "Maestro", which you'll soon find out is a "Tute" and you play with "The Tutes" for your first song which happens to be Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. It's a great intro to the game and after you do the "tutorial" that's where you get to the real gameplay.
There are 4 things you can go to: Videos, Jam, Games and Lessons.
Videos allow you to watch Wii Music videos that you have made using the Jam Section. Once you've made a certain amount of videos the "Maestro Tute" gives you another lesson in the Lessons section.
The Jam section allows you to make your own videos and jamming with your favorite instrument with a song like Super Mario Bros! Jam also has an Improve Instrument section where you can play with all of your unlocked instruments and learn how to play them.
The games include "Conducting" where you conduct 5 songs including Mario and Zelda (also if you get more than 2 people playing there you can play the "Syncro" game). Next is this Bell game where again you play 5 songs according to when you're supposed to play your bell. (It's like Guitar hero...lol! BELL HERO!) and finally there's Perfect Pitch where you get to run the clock as you match Mii's pitches with the game's.
Wii Music's music isn't the best selection for you "Guitar Hero" and "Rock Band" fans. It's more of "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and "Sakura" type songs, BUT don't get me wrong these aren't bad songs. Wii Music has a lot of songs to keep you entertained. I for one like the Nintendo songs they have like F-Zero and Mario. There are some songs that I can do without in the game, like "My Grandfather's Clock", but I managed (made it into a rock song lol!). Anyway the Wii Music list here in Wii's World is somewhat correct but there is a whole lot more (I think there's 50 songs).
Now for the instruments. All GREAT! As a Tuba player I'd have to say that's a great sound for the Tuba. There is absolutely no limitations to the "Harmony", "Melody", "Chord" and "Bass" parts, they can be just about anything. Percussion has to be well you know.. drums.
I think this game is one of Wii's greatest games. Like the other "Wii (title)" games, you use your Miis in this one. I truly love this game. I recommend it to every Wii owner.
