[prMac.com] Eden Prairie, Minnesota - AtPlayMusic is pleased to announce the all new Recorder 2.0 app, a follow up to the critically acclaimed Recorder 1.0, fully interactive and now teaching students to play a full octave. AtPlayMusic Recorder 2.0 is available in both free and full versions, with expanded lessons, enhanced listening technology and downloadable songs.
"We believe if you engage children early to begin playing instruments," stated Gary Meyer, President of AtPlayMusic, "they will have a lifetime of music appreciation. Have you ever asked your child to stop a music lesson to come to the dinner table? Our music apps are fun and rewarding to help children stay engaged."
AtPlayMusic's Recorder 2.0 guides the user to use both hands as they play their own recorder, learn the eight notes of the C Major Scale and are introduced to new songs. As in the previous version, Mr. Noteworthy, the on-screen instructor, along with the student's customized avatar, lead us through the musical venture. The expanded listening technology in version 2.0 analyzes each note as the student plays an activity or song and pauses when incorrect notes are played or are played for too short of a duration. Additional songs are now available as in-app purchases. The library of songs features classic Christmas holiday selections.
