Winner of the Academic's Choice Award and the Best Mobile Apps Award. “Look, I’m Making it Up!” is a magical story that introduces children to the concept of improvisation and develops their creativity and curiosity.
Meet Camilo, a free - spirited young boy who likes to do things in his own original way. Camilo loves to play music, dance, build, bake and paint. He also loves to put his own personal stamp on every thing he does. When Camilo hears distant sounds of jazz music coming from the park, his mom takes him there to listen. Camilo learns a new word from the musicians, IMPROVISATION. He quickly realizes that he has been an improviser all along!

Ratings and Reviews
Music teacher approved
I love this app as a music teacher. Something I’ve noticed is that older my students are, the less creative their musical “compositions” get. When they are in PreK, many of my students draw amazing graphic notation on the board for the class to mimic with our voices. The older students’ drawings that look very much like variations on the examples I provide. I love that this app encourages kids to be creative! My favorite part is the activity is where students play the piano with various instruments, but I also like the connection this app makes to improvising in the kitchen and with your clothes. Really fun app about creativity!!
Great app young kids can play independently!
My daughter is loving the games- mostly the music and cookie decorating ones- and I love that the story is ‘read’ to her without her needing me. She's figured out how to navigate the entire app on her own. She can not only play this app independently but her creativity and imagination is being put to use at the same time! And as a parent, the background noise is just right- not too loud or screechy or annoying!
Creative and beautifully illustrated
Both my 6 and 3 year old sons love this app. They stay happily engaged whenever they play. When reading the story they show such delight clicking through each screen to uncover the whimsical fun animations. My youngest enjoys playing dress up! So happy to have a game on my phone that taps into their creativity!
