”The Flight of the Bumble Bee” is the exciting adventure of a little bumble bee, told to the music of Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s famous musical composition “The Flight of the Bumble Bee”.
This is a unique interactive musical concept featuring an original story whose characters are brilliantly illustrated and come alive when the iPad or iPad mini screen is tapped or touched. The story is designed both to reflect the inspiration behind the music, and to fit in perfectly with its musical twists and turns.
Your children will love listening over and over to this spirited, imaginative tale of an impatient bee while listening to one of the most famous and exciting musical compositions in the classical canon played by some of America’s finest musicians and recorded by an 11 time Grammy award winner.
Experts in child growth and development agree that learning to appreciate and understand the “language of music” helps children flourish, intellectually and emotionally. Children will find this app pure fun—but parents and educators will know that they’re also benefiting from the brain stimulation that classical music provides to growing minds.

"The Music Bee Club" app series is a brilliant creation appealing to visual and auditory learners of all ages. It sizzles with energy as it enriches the emotional, creative and intellectual mind.

"…apps that charmingly and enchantingly invite children into a the world of classical music as listeners through story-telling, interactive animation, games, and do-it-yourself art. A generation of children will hear their first performance of The Flight of the Bumble Bee and The Swan through these apps ….."

“… an extremely imaginative and unique approach that introduces children to music. Colorful and fanciful, with wonderful music, this creatively designed interactive app will be asked for again and again. But that’s just the fun part!
A variety of studies have linked childhood exposure to musical experiences with greater capacity for self-regulation and improved memory skills associated with higher literacy, mathematical ability, and IQ. Taken together, these studies clearly show that music is an important nutrient in children’s cognitive development, and as such, is a critical component of early childhood education.
Children will ask for the app because it is fun and holds their attention. Parents will appreciate the beneficial effects that stem from this musical exposure. It’s a win/win!

Stayed tuned for our next musical tale, “The Swan”, music by Camille Saint-Saens!

Great app for kids
I am a speech therapist, and my students really connected to the music and loved the story. They especially enjoy the painting part which I like, because it expands their imagination and creativity. I would recommend this app to any parent or educator.
