Ratings and Reviews
Excellent app for music exposure
Yes, the dancing grandparent is silly, but that's this series' trademark and younger kids love it, this particular app can bridge over to a slightly older audience say 5 to 8 yrs and is really good for learning basic music concepts, what different instruments sound like, music notation, etc. It offers part of a keyboard to practice on and tests note names and has fun little games to reinforce concepts. Very worth the price. A nice addition to the collection.
Fun But Needs Some Tweaks
I use this app during piano lessons with children ages 7 to 10. Most kids, I've noticed, think the cut scenes where grandma dances are pretty stupid and lame. The developer should take those out or make them optional. It really is kind of lame. There needs to be more content added, too, so that the questions don't repeat as quickly as they do now. Overall, it's a good app, and I hope the developer keeps on improving it.
As part of a bundle
Purchased with the cooking, toolbox, and outer space apps with Grandpa & Grandma. Nice learning apps, especially the music one. I wish it had a few more exercises in reading notes on the treble clef. Also wish it had more "follow the music pattern" games. Still a quick intro into musical symbols and instruments.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
