Moozart for your Mini-Maestros

Moozart Musical iPad App from meltmedia on Vimeo

"What does a pig sound like singing in the key of C? Or perhaps a chorus of frogs, ducks and cows singing in harmony?"

Yep, that caught our attention too when we saw the description of the quite bonkers, but actually very educational, iPad app Moozart.

The app uses the 'voices' of barnyard animals (and other farm noises) as musical instruments. Instead of musical notes there are cute cartoon representations of the sound you have chosen and these can be arranged on a musical staff, just as you would with a more serious music creation app.

There are a bunch of well known songs built-in such as Chopsticks, Farmer in the Dell, London Bridge and Twinkle, Twinkle, but it is being able to create your own songs and experiment with music making in such a fun way that has really impressed us. 

The fact that Moozart is not an academic-looking formal learning app is what gives it so much potential to involve your little (and probably not so little) ones in music making and we are certain it will get them excited about creating their own pieces.

Moozart really hits the sweet spot for educational, fun and creative music making for kids, and at only $1.99 (£1.19) in the app store we think it is a bargain.

Have you tried Moozart out? Let us know what you think in the comments.
