We are all about creative learning at Smarten Up. With the seemingly limitless potential offered by computers, smart phones, and tablets to learn just about everything, we are thrilled with the musical education kids can gain anytime and anywhere with these great apps!
Simon Sings plays a sequence of musical notes that you have to memorize and then repeat by singing, humming or whistling into the iPhone's microphone. With each new round the sequence becomes longer. Your kids will learn to sing, improve their hearing, and train their memory all at the same time!
Play By Ear is a call-and-response ear training application that helps anyone develop the ability to hear pitches and play them back on their instrument by ear. Unlike other applications which force you to press buttons to indicate the notes you've heard, Play By Ear uses pitch recognition so the user can actually play the notes back on their instrument (piano, guitar, trumpet, etc). A pretty amazing tool for children that already have experience playing an instrument.
Learning an instrument is great for the mind and soul, so get your little one making some sweet, sweet music today!
