Freebee Friday: Tap the Digital Ivories
Forget about having a room full of pianos to teach kids music because with Dream Cortex’s Baby Piano, an iPad can be a good starter keyboard. The screen becomes a 7-key piano keyboard that plays lets kids play freeform or along with popular nursery rhymes. The keys are marked with Do, Re Mi names and the app plays notes or animal sounds and kids can record their work for mom to hear. It’s too basic and juvenile for any kid older than second or third grade, but who cares, it’s a freebee and a whole lot cheaper than a room full of pianos.
