Jellybean Tunes

Play! Learn! Create! Jellybean Tunes is a wonderful introduction to playing, reading and creating music. Play many different children's and classical songs. Sing along, record and play back your performance! Learn the basics of reading music through 6 different narrated and animated lessons. Create your own songs with the intuitive editor. Give them names and pictures from your photo library for that personal touch, then play, sing and record your own creations.

You can even take Jellybean Tunes to a real piano, or other instrument, in place of sheet music. As the notes scroll by, play your melody without having to stop to turn a page. Our replay feature allows you to listen to your recorded performance.

Made by the parents of a young child, Jellybean Tunes introduces children to the musical staff through lessons and fun activities. Big, colourful notes, buttons and backgrounds present music in an engaging and fun way suited to younger hands. Playing songs by touching notes on the staff shows children (and adults!) where the notes are, what sounds they make, and what letters are associated with them. The lessons take learning a step further by gently presenting basic music theory. The editor allows freedom to explore and create music, further reinforcing musical concepts.

We like the editor so much that we used it ourselves to add all of the songs included in the app.

We made this app to help further our own child's interest in music. He loves listening to recordings of him playing and singing... and he likes to create really, really long songs!
