Your progress is saved* automatically as you play the game, so take as much time and as many breaks as you need; this game will be ready to continue where you left off when you come back.
The prize you earn at the end of the game is supposedly magical, but since we never see it used on anything, it's basically a moot point.
Your primary goal is to find "outlines" -- simple patterns that can be used to program a music box. To find these outlines you need to search the various rooms of your grandfather's house and in many cases, you'll need to move something to expose the outline or a fragment of it. Once you find it, the outline will be added to a journal you've been carrying around.
Finding all of the outlines that make up a song allows you to move on to the next step: solving the music box. During these segments you place various pieces in a grid. Each piece describes a portion of the song, and once all of the pieces are placed, the music box engages, the song is performed, and a secret is unlocked. These secrets can be parts of other outlines or keys to one of the house's various rooms.
Once you solve all of the patterns, you earn your birthday present and the ability to play the Creations mode of the game. This new mode is just an expansion of the music box riddles where you can mess around without limits or goals.
If you're a fan of classical music, you'll probably enjoy Musaic Box more than your average gamer, as there's a lot of music related trivia scattered throughout the game.
