It is difficult not to be a pushy parent sometimes, no matter how much you try, but surely a little gentle coaxing in the creative, musical direction is ok, isn't it?
Baby Chords is an app that might help both entertain and distract little ones, whilst introducing them to the principles of making music with scales and chords.
The app has been specifically designed to make basic, possibly harmonic, noise making easy for anyone. This is from the iTunes description (capitalisation as per the original):
Pressing any three consecutive notes ALWAYS PRODUCES A CHORD. Sliding your finger across notes ALWAYS RESULTS HARMONIOUS.
Select among delightful instrument sounds of the PIANO, HARP and GLOCKENSPIEL with beautiful baby musical instrument interfaces, baby PATTERNS and baby BLOCKS as display options.
Baby Chords is in the app store now for $2.99 (£1.79). Let us know if you try this app, and what your little ones think, in the comments below.
