Reviews for full/free version:
"Kids love it! ***** We bought Discover Musical Instruments for our kids (1 1/2 years old and 3 1/2 years old) on our iPod. They are captivated by all the different sounds it produces. Many instruments to discover (even for us, parents!) and really easy to use. My personal favorite educational app so far! :)" By Plumedor / Canada

"Great for young children ***** My three year old now prefers this app over all others. He loves making the instruments all play together. I love how it will say the instrument name when he touches the word, teaching reading as well. It's a great flashcard. I've taught him the instruments, but I would be hard-pressed to find a better way to teach him the instrument sounds of so many instruments in such a fun way. 5 stars!" by technolingua / U.S.

"What a fantastic idea ***** I show this to my three year old, and it was facinating how he kept going for the next and the next. The fact that you can hear the instrument was like a discovery for him. He kept clicking the banjo and the bell and the drums, haha i guess he will be in a band some day. Very instructive." by The_X3 / U.S.

The free version of this educational game offers a collection of 20 (full version has 60) high quality musical instruments pictures and sound clips to give your kids a rich and fun learning experience about the wonderful musical world. It will also help them discover their sense of rhythm!

This app can be easily used by children as young as 6 months old, when they express a desire to touch everything! The combination of visual and auditory contents makes this application ideal for learning musical instruments vocabulary.

In portrait orientation, an instrument and his name is shown. Touching the picture will reveal the sound clip and touching the name will play its diction. We can navigate through the instruments using arrows or simply by sliding the pictures with a finger like in the photos app.

Landscape mode will fascinate your kids by giving them access to multiple musical instruments at the time on the screen. Being able to scroll through all of them and touching multiple instruments at a time will allow your child to create an all new symphony that will enchant everyone!

A customization module allows you to change instrument names and record custom sounds and pronunciation. You can even record the voice of your child to show him how he's good!

Ratings and Reviews

Good start


This seems like a good app but and could be great. It needs more navigation buttons or list option to be able to go to a certain instrument versus having to go through the same instruments every time.

The best of its kind!

Thin Slice

I am very satisfied with this app. I was getting frustrated trying to find an app that would help my 3 y/0 learn the names and sounds of musical instr. I deleted one of the other similar app 2 mins after D/L! Another had only 12 pictures available on their free version and no voice to tell the name of the instr. I appreciate this so much, I'm gonna get the paid version today. Thanks again guys

Please correct mistakes in next update


I would love to give this app five stars and I will, if the developers correct some glaring mistakes in the next update. As another reviewer wrote, the French horn recording is completely wrong. Also, the picture for the bongo is incorrect (it shows an African djembe, not the Latin-American bongo with two drumheads). Lastly, the pictures for the oboe, bassoon and piccolo show antique instruments, not the modern versions played today. Kudos for the picture quality and the great sound clips of actual instruments, instead of synthesized sound.
