"What a brilliant way to teach music!" -User review
We’ve applied state-of-the art learning science research in designing Music Learning Lab. We identified key skills that serve as a foundation for music learning, and designed the lessons in Music Learning Lab using methods that combine our love and knowledge of music with principles derived from basic learning sciences research.
The result is that learners acquire an important set of music skills, and have a tremendous amount of fun doing it. Every learner will be prepared for music appreciation, using music software such as GarageBand®, and further music instruction privately or in school.
"The instruction is very well designed, and the animations will delight your children. If your children are used to playing games on an iPad, they'll really enjoy this app, and be all set for their future in music. You'll probably enjoy it yourself, too."

Ratings and Reviews
I'm a piano teacher looking for apps to help supplement note reading and ear training. I like the pitch matching section of this app. The "make a song" section was not good because you can only place notes on lines (skipping the spaces), and yet what you hear are 2nds. So it would be incongruous with what little musicians already know: that notes moving up in 2nds are space-line-space or vice versa. Ill keep trying this app, but it seems only lightly educational.
Fantastic for music ed
I'm an elementary music teacher, and use this as a supplement for my 1st grade classes about every other week or so. They are into competing against each other to see which class can get the highest level, and all the kids participate to help the one who is at the iPad get the right answers. They really cheer when they unlock a new instrument or prize! The pedagogy is sound, and simple, yet involved enough that the kids have to work to train their ears. Recreating melodies from the radio really gives their listening skills a workout.
By the way, it is completely worth it to get the Pro version; I upgraded soon after I downloaded this one. Hope someone will buy the Pro, and put a review there soon (I'm sure you will agree how good it is), because the Pro version isn't getting any reviews yet. No, not an employee, just a very satisfied customer!
Fun for kids and adults
I wish I had this when I was a kid! I stopped taking lessons because of poor instruction, but this would've kept me going. I'm using it now to pick up where I left off.
The instruction is very well designed, and the animations will delight your children. If your children are used to playing games on an iPad, they'll really enjoy this app, and be all set for their future in music. You'll probably enjoy it yourself, too.
