Play your own instrument along with Mr. Noteworthy and your avatar classmate, as AtPlayMusic's advanced teaching technology listens, evaluates and guides you as you explore new notes and songs. You can share your experience by recording your performance and emailing to friends, family and teachers. You can examine the 3D instruction animation in detail with the innovative pinch-zoom-rotate feature. AtPlayMusic Recorder guides you as you learn all 8 notes of the C Major Scale.

The listening technology analyzes each note as you play an activity or song. The App pauses when a note’s pitch is played incorrectly or the note is played for too short of a duration. The App shows the note that was played, and waits for you to play the correct note.

Choose to play any of the 250+ songs from our music library. Use familiar finger charts and the listening technology to learn your favorite songs. At the end of each song you are presented with a proficiency score showing how many notes were played correctly. The Stats display presents a list of all the songs you have played, and how many of the notes you were able to play. Cumulative statistics are always available on the Stats page and shared in Game Center.

With the help of your instructor, Mr. Noteworthy, you will start learning about music, the recorder and how to play it. You are joined by your customized avatar classmate. Together you will learn, play and have fun as you begin your journey into music. All songs are arranged to play the melody. The Transposition feature lets you shift the pitch of a song’s notes up or down allowing you to customize the range of a song.

Learn at your own pace. With the ability to pause and navigate through the scene, you will be able to get a new perspective on learning. The History feature keeps track of the scores for all the performances of each song.

This lesson was developed to have fun while learning the fundamentals. You will learn:

The Recorder parts, inside and out
How to hold the recorder
Proper mouth shape
Breath control
Fingering and thumb placement
How to separate notes
How to play the eight notes of the C major scale.

I’m 9 and this is the best recorder app EVER!!!!!!!!!

Because it lets me create an avatar and it has fun songs. You can look at a 3-D view of what the avatar is doing.

My dad likes the feedback that you get when playing. It encourages you to keep going.

Fundamentally Fantastic!

As a father with no musical skills, my kids were tasked with learning the recorder. Where do I start? Ive been researching some applications to help me help my kids and have been waiting for this app to be released… But not only for my kids!

In this initial release, its super easy for my young'uns to follow along with the fun animations and easy to follow instructions on learning the basics, and hey, I'm even learning how to play the recorder to help them along.

But! I'm also excited about where this app is going in the future! I understand that this app will also be able to help me learn guitar. If you've ever priced music lessons… $3.99 is a steal… I almost feel guilty. Definitely recommend this app to both the young and old.

Educational, Engaging & Fun!

As the homeschool to mother to 4 boys ages 5, 7, 9 and 11, I found this app to be a wonderful resource in teaching our boys to play the recorder. It is very obvious that much time, energy & talent was put into this app. The AtPlayMusic app kept our boys interested and wanting to move on to the next lesson.

Our family is very musical, my husband, is a professional Jazz percussionist and all of our boys play instruments. We would not normally turn to an app to learn to play an instrument but I have to say that we were pleasantly surprised. This is the perfect app for beginners and a wonderful tool to increase a child’s musical confidence. Not to mention, this app is easy on the wallet at a price point of just $3.99.
