★ FREE For a limited time! ★
The young musician in your life will love improving their musical skills as they play classic nursery rhymes and holiday tunes, helped by a group of hilarious musical animals who pop up from holes in the ground.
Tap the animals in the order they pop up, and create your tune!
Designed for children ages 2 and up, Mindshapes’ Tap-A-Tune builds musical confidence and provides valuable learning (hand-eye coordination, exposure to different rhythms, instruments and tones). The app is wrapped in a hilariously cute design that will hold your child’s attention as they succeed at tune-making.
The app has three different modes:
-Play mode: Tap on the animals, as they pop up, to play each note of a song. Upon completion, the tune plays back, and the animals dance to celebrate your success.
-Freestyle mode: Tap on any animal, in any sequence, to compose your own song.
-Baby mode: Tap on any animal and the notes of the tune will play automatically.
As well as choosing their favourite tunes, children can also try ‘keyboard’ mode, where the animals pop up from a traditional keyboard instead of holes in the ground. This mode is great if you want your child to start understanding how keyboards work, as a building block for formal musical learning.
Children can also cycle through many different instruments. including piano, accordion, clarinet, acoustic guitar, and even animal noises!
