This is a note and song teaching app I made to help kids learn music. It has cute graphics and fun play modes, while remaining true to actual musical education.

Feedback from a music teacher: "It teaches the visual association of staff notes-to-keyboard keys in a way that is sympathetic to children's motivation and need for reward. The built in teacher and fade-in answer are great for this kind of bland memory-work, as kids absorb and memorize the notes, they rely less and less on the help. With this app I can get kids whose parents don't read music or play a musical instrument to learn this vital reading skill in a much shorter time scale. It also encourages parents or other siblings to learn to read."

Sound stopped working after three days.
Road to Five Stars
This is a really great app. I love how unique it's is. I would give five stars, if:
1. You can add more songs.
2. You can add difficulty levels, be it songs with more notes or double notes.
3. You can make song duration. For example, we can choose to play the whole song (full) or half, or just the intro.
4. You can fix the songs. Some of the songs are wrong. One of them is Moonlight Sonata (the last song) it's supposed to be G#, C#, E eight times but instead, it's less than that. In other words, fix the score.
Music theory made easy
Though this app is clearly tailored towards the little ones, I found it very useful as an adult. Despite trying my best to grasp music theory, and putting it into practice on the guitar, I have had problems getting things into my long term memory. This app has helped me a lot to remember where each note lies on the keyboard, and by extension on the guitar fretboard. Highly recommended for music theory novices.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
