As seen on NBC News! Rated "The Best iPad Music Apps for Kids" by iPadForKids.com...
Your child can learn to read music!
This is the first lesson in the "Treble Clef Kids" series of music applications! (note, for additional options, chromatic scales, and dual clef, search for Treble Clef Kids "Deluxe" in the App Store)
"Treble Clef Kids" is a fun, interactive and educational way for kids to learn the basics of music theory. Many agree that exposure to music correlates to better performance in school. "Treble Clef Kids" is the first step to enriching the lives of your precious little ones through music.
"Treble Clef Kids" is a new method to learn to read notes on a musical staff in a logical, guided way. It builds upon the skills learned, progressing through four applications:
A) "Practice" mode, to explore the piano keyboard and see the corresponding note names and location on a musical staff.
B) "Level 1" uses a combination of the note letters presented on the actual keyboard, the name of the note asked for, and the location of the note on the staff. Children are encouraged to play the piano key matching the note letter.
C) "Level 2" is the same as Level 1 but removes the note names from the piano keyboard, asking the child to identify the right piano key by name.
D) "Level 3" challenges your youngster without the aid of the letter name, and only presents the musical staff. This is the natural culmination on the path to reading music!
The interactive playing of the piano encourages children to seek the correct answer through the sound of applause, while providing quirky sounds for wrong answers without penalty.
This is a wonderful app, proven in my own home, with days of enjoyment, challenge, and continued learning.
If you enjoy this app, be sure to look for the rest of the "Treble Clef Kids" music series for more lessons!
Your child can learn to read music, too!

Ratings and Reviews
I have looked at several apps for learning notes on the piano for my daughter who is struggling with it. This one looked promising and I LOVE the cheering and the quirky noises for wrong answers. What I can't understand is why the game doesn't teach the complete treble clef. The keyboard only goes up to high C and then stops. It would also be neat to see some kind of scoring added so that goals can be met and exceeded.
Update: I came back to the reviews and found them misleading! 1) Sound works fine if the mute/screen lock switch isn't on. 2) There are multiple levels so the big letter does disappear. 3) I've had no trouble with the keys responding or the answers registered. This is a fantastic app and I hope more people download it for their kids!!
This is simply fantastic. My daughter learned all the notes on the piano within days. She still plays with it and is so enticed by the sounds and applause. This is so effective and an amazing approach to learning the piano. I will download more apps in this inventive and creative series!
Great for Kids
I wanted to start my toddler learning the notes on the clef and the piano keys. This app let's her explore herself or quizzes her on the notes. She is addicted to this app and it has really prepared her for formal music training. I highly recommend this app for all ages to learn music.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
