Children learn how to speak before they know how to read or even recognize letters. It would make sense, then, that children can learn music the same way. If children can listen to music and learn to distinguish pitch, rhythm and notes, then learning to play music will come much more easily to them. Easy Music used that idea to create an app that gives children the opportunity to listen to and explore music, and begin to learn musical skills and develop musicality.
Easy Music has two modes of play: Practice and Compose. In Practice Mode, children can visit four worlds to master notes, pitch, rhythm or melody. They can tap rhythms with a fox or experiment with different pitches with the whale. Once they feel comfortable with the basic elements of music, they can compose and record their own music in Compose mode. There is an adorable panda, a cuddly bear and a perfect pink flamingo that are ready and waiting to help your children become mini-music composers!
This app is pretty remarkable. I am not someone who either education or experience in music; however from my perspective Easy Music appears to be a great way to introduce kids to music! The activities are spot on as far as teaching the concepts the app aims to teach. The activities are fun and engaging and increase in difficulty as the child masters each level. The cute animal friends that accompany the child in each world add to the enjoyment and appeal of this game as well. I am really looking forward to having my preschooler use this app and I am anxious to see where it takes him. I would recommend this app to other parents who want to introduce their young children to music. Easy Music is sure to please in sound and sight!
