Creative, Educational, and Beautifully Illustrated

Not only as a lover of Jazz, but also as the brother of two musicians and the son of two educators, I feel this App is wonderful for children, parents, and individuals who work with children on many levels. Besides teaching young people the way a Jazz ensemble is constructed and how Jazz musicians utilize improvisation, a skill used in life in all areas, not just the arts, this App encourages children to try something they may have not been exposed to or are not that familiar with. I am also Therapist and the research has proven that music education and education in the arts in other areas (i.e. drawing, storytelling) enhances learning in other subject areas (i.e. Math, Science). The more we expose children to the arts, the more academically successful and creative human beings they will become. I think this App is more that what it appears and its surplus meaning is significant. Thank you for making this piece of art to share with us.

Great fun/educational app

This app is excellent for anyone who wants to introduce their children to jazz music at an early age. An app like this could be fundamental in a child's development, giving them a head start to any formal education. In addition, its quite fun, and a good excuse to involve both the parent and child. There is a story book portion that can either be read by the app itself or read without audio -- a great start to get a child reading and recognizing words. Then, there is a instrument recognition game, which can keep a kid busy for hours. The animation is fantastic, cute, and runs quite smoothly. The sound effects are clear and realistic; and this is coming from a musician.

A Jazzy World vs Jazzy Day

Jazzy World is VERY disappointing. Cute app if the sound worked. Some countries like Ireland work, other countries like Kenya there is no sound. Australia sound works on some but not on others or only works for half of the reading material. I am sorry I purchased and would like my money back if that were possible. If the sound worked I would be a very happy purchaser of the application and give it 5 stars. As it stands I wish I could give it no stars. For the price I Expect the product to work! I purchased Jazzy Day first, the quality on Jazzy World is very poor
