Cute cartoon critters and objects lead children through various games that hone their skills in listening and repeating percussive beats, pitches, and notes. The games get harder and harder as kids move along the levels. Then they can switch to composing mode and tap on the animals and items to create music, from jazz to fusion. 

Best for: Teaching pitch, notes, rhythm, and melody to early grade-schoolers
