My children fight to use this app

And to me, that's a sign of a good app. I appreciate the fact they are being exposed to a variety of instruments, melodies, arrangements, etc., in a fun, handheld setting. If there ever was a "gateway" app to encourage your children to make music, this is it: My 5 yo has asked for his own sitar to add to his growing collection of instruments and we're all for it!
