[prMac.com] Eden Prairie, Minnesota - AtPlayMusic is pleased to announce the availability of ten additional songs for their newly updated Recorder and Recorder Free apps. Students can use AtPlayMusic's enhanced listening technology to learn and play some of classical and traditional music's most popular melodies. The songs are featured as in-app purchases and include such well known compositions as "Brahms Lullaby", The Theme from Swan Lake, and Amazing Grace.
AtPlayMusic Recorder is an interactive animated introduction to the Recorder. Students learn the basics by playing their own recorder along with the animated instructor, Mr. Noteworthy, and the student's customized avatar. As part of the lessons, AtPlayMusic's listening technology analyzes the notes as the student plays an activity or song. The app pauses if an incorrect note is played, and waits for the student to play the correct note. The same technology is also used to learn and play songs the user chooses to download from the app's store function.
"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."
