A Symphony of Amazingness

This is an amazing fun app for teaching music and classical music. The artwork is great, the layout is great. There is a huge amount of information about instruments and composers and uses of music. There are wonderful pieces for the music selections. This app had a lot of work and thought put into it. AND by people who knew what they were doing. It is very thoughtful and well-constructed. It has three main sections which cover instruments, composers and the when and where of classical music. Each page has loads of places to click to hear sounds, music or facts about music. The user interface is highly child-friendly and engaging. There is a lot of information here that is great for preschoolers. This app has enough information and complexity in it, that it would be great for older children and even adults. It is well researched and has lots of amazing facts and musical selections. It is like an interactive mini encyclopedia of classical music.
Pure Genius!
