FarmYard Piano iPad App Teaches Music to Kids via Animals
London, United Kingdom – Moonpans Apps announces FarmYard Piano 1.1. FarmYard Piano is a very simple to use, single screen app based in a farmyard. The child just needs to select an animal from the top menu, then play that animal’s sound on the keyboard below. The sounds span 8 musical notes from C to high C and can be set to a single animal – pigs, cows, sheep, ducks, or for a very fun result, a mixture of all 4!
Making full use of the iPad’s, multi-touch feature, many animals can be played at the same time or played in quick succession such as running your finger up and down the keyboard. The app has been designed to give young children a strong audio and visual reaction, as whenever an animal is touched not only will you hear its sound, but it will also animate as it pushes out its oink, moo, baa or quack.
In the latest version 1.1, a new song lessons feature has been added that displays well known childrens’ songs and nursery rhymes along with the musical notes for each. The corresponding notes also appear above the animals thus allowing the child to play the song using the animals.
Several age groups will enjoy FarmYard Piano, from babies who will enjoy the audio and visual reactions, toddlers who like making as much noise as possible, to older piano savvy children who will be able to play simple tunes, but would prefer to Baa, Baa Black Sheep using actual sheep rather than a boring old piano!
