Chase the Music web re-launch

We’re re-launching, to help you better experience Chase the Music, and to help us keep it current. The old structure was prohibitively difficult to add new content to. As we were constantly producing new pieces for really special kids, this was horrible! We couldn’t put new things on, without getting ourselves further stuck.
