Yea not realy

In this lesson, you'll learn all the essential Spanish terms for musical instruments, as well as some related vocabulary. Learn how to talk about your favorite instruments and musical experiences.
Let the Music Play!
What kind of music do you prefer? Do you play any musical instruments? How often do you go to concerts or music festivals? In this lesson, we explore the Spanish vocabulary for musical instruments, or instrumentos musicales (pronounced: eens-troo-MEHN-tohs moo-see-KAH-lehs).

Whether you are a classical music expert or a rock fan, it'll be useful to learn the main vocabulary and expressions you need to talk about your favorite musical instruments. We'll classify them in four tables, each one corresponding to each family of the orchestra, or orquesta (pronounced: ohr-KEHS-tah).

Translation: The orchestra.
String Instruments
Let's start with the largest family within the orquesta - the string instruments, or instrumentos de cuerda (eens-troo-MEHN-tohs deh KWEHR-dah). Take a look at the main terms and how they are pronounced in Spanish.

Spanish Pronunciation Translation
el violín (ehl byoh-LEEN) the violin
la viola (lah BYOH-lah) the viola
el violonchelo/
el chelo (ehl byoh-lohn-CHEH-loh/
ehl CHEH-loh) the cello
el contrabajo (ehl kohn-trah-BAH-hoh) the double bass
el arpa (ehl AHR-pah) the harp
el piano (ehl PYAH-noh) the piano
la guitarra (lah gee-TAH-rah) the guitar
el bajo (ehl BAH-hoh) the bass guitar

Ipad app(s) don’t have full functionality

The product is excellent in theory but there are 2 different iPad apps, one paid upfront and one paid in app, I ended up buying both hoping for full functionality, one should be removed from the store to avoid both appear identical.

The second issue is neither app has the library functionality, in particular image searching, if this could be enabled the app would be brilliant.. they can get pictures online and create brilliant books…

This is a far superior product to the others on the market, it just need streamlining and image searching without requiring extra accounts, logins, websites, seperate libraries every time the kid’s open the app.

Really needs some improvement

I’m a student and my school iPad has the full version of this, the full version is great and all but that iPad is at school. Now all the sudden I need to buy a 8$ app to make more than one book? Come on, we all know the situation we are in and your just looking for money. ONE BOOK ONLY, SAYS BOOK CREATOR FREE. JUST ONE. I haven’t even tried to customise it yet but I don’t think it’s that helpful anymore because you want to do multiple projects. For people like me who can’t afford to spend 8$ dollars it’s a waste of your time. Just use pages.
