First impressions of Pitch Painter

I like the idea of the different colors for different instruments. As a teacher, I had a few doubts about the pedagogical value of the app. My first experience was that students want to fill in the whole square, mixing different colors. What they come up with is a cacophony that isn’t really teaching them composition. There should probably be an adjustment to the app that limits them to single or double lines for each instrument, so that they will be encouraged to write linear melodies. The price was also a bit high.
