Color Me Piano is a great little piano app for iPhone and iPad that you can use to introduce your children to the world of music in a fun and colorful manner, with tools for helping them learn the basics of musical notation and note names in the context of a piano or keyboard.
This isn’t what I would consider to be a hard and fast educational app, which I suppose is why it has been placed in the Games category of the App Store, but it should certainly help to set your children on the right path when it comes to developing their musicianship later on in life.
What we have here is an awesome app that provides a fun and educational introduction to the world of music for young children and helps them to learn the names of each note including accidentals, as well as their locations on a piano.
You can also set up this piano keyboard app in order to see the musical notation displayed on a score as you play individual notes or chords, helping to familiarize your children with notation and some of the basic concepts behind it.
Perfect for Toddlers
Color Me Piano also provides support for finger scrolling so that you can roll your fingers across the piano keys, which should be very nicely suited to toddlers who tend to be a little more clumsy or rough with the display of your iOS device.
What’s more, and you were probably wondering about this; you can specify which color you would like the keys to be displayed in based on your child’s mood or preferences, hence the title “Color Me Piano”!
