Useful app for young and old musicians

My little 6-year old daughter was able to start learning the piano notes with this app because the first level only quizzes and tests you on 5 notes. (I love how you can cycle through the notes in the Study Mode and see the written notes, the note names, and the piano keys all changing simultaneously...that helped a lot!) She kept playing over and over until she could earn a black belt.
Meanwhile my teenage daughter was able to get a lot better at the more advanced saxophone notes and fingerings (such as the palm key and low pinky key notes). The app is motivating and has a lot of valuable features. This new updated version even lets you make custom tests with whatever notes you want/need to practice the most. It's awesome, and totally worth $3!


Needs some refinement

I’m a professional music educator and I use a lot of iPad apps to reinforce theory concepts I’m teaching the kids. There is a lot of promise to this app! I love that you can choose between reading notes on the keyboard, naming them, interpreting rhythms. Graphics are great. But, the downsides are that I can only input 3 students, and the app is not user friendly. I’m fairly computer and app savvy, and I’m having a hard time setting specific notes to test, and making some other tweaks as I’m using it.

Developer Response

Thank you for your feedback. The Games 4 Kids edition of NinGenius Music is intended for personal/home use for a student. If you are looking to add more than 3 students, then the Studio Edition is probably the better one for you. It includes learning up to 3 instruments and unlimited student profiles. We would also be interested to hear more about the areas of the user interface that you would like to see improvement. Thank you again for your review.


A wonderful app great for learning notes!

This app is greatly appreciated because I could not read notes and now I can get a purple belt first try in one day! terrific! Wonderful! Splendid! Great!
