"So simple to use and engaging... [and] great production value. The sound quality is excellent, and the graphics bright and colorful. Kids will have a lot of fun."
The Tune Zoo is an easy-to-learn music toy that encourages beginner musicians (children or otherwise!) to explore many of the fundamentals of music: melody and harmony, expression, performance, interaction, collaboration, composition, arrangement and improvisation.
Play solo or jam together in a group; compose your own tunes with looping and key changes; record and share a performance, or peek under the hood to explore the mechanics of melody, with harmonies and scales from all around the world – from Blues to Indian Ragas.
There are no rules, high scores, time limits or stress – just open-ended creative, constructive play. It's simple enough for a beginner to pick up immediately, but has enough layers of complexity to interest even the most experienced musician in the family!

Playful musical learning
A lovely little playground for musical exploration. Each key used is accompanied by a more in depth description of what it is, and where it originated from.
The recording and loop facilities are minimal, but work well, and everything sounds great. Lots of fun.
