We are Little Composers

Our mission is to turn moms into music teachers and children into famous Little Composers

The app-based "creative children compose music" method is the brain-child of Austrian-born composer Ernst Renner and specifically designed to teach children between the ages of 3 and 8 how to compose and play hundreds of different melodies from the moment they start.
If your child shows an interest in music then make time and play. In 10 years from now, you will be glad you did.

Nous sommes les petits compositeurs!

Notre mission est de transformer les mamans en professeurs de musique et les enfants en célèbres petits compositeurs.

La méthode des « enfants créatifs composant de la musique », basée sur une application, est l’idée du compositeur autrichien Ernst Renner et est conçue spécifiquement pour enseigner aux enfants, ayant entre 3 et 8 ans, comment composer et jouer des centaines de mélodies différentes dès le moment où ils débutent.
Si votre enfant démontre de l’intérêt pour la musique, trouvez du temps et jouez. D’ici 10 ans, vous serez heureux de l’avoir fait.

Willkommen bei Little Composers!

Wir machen aus Mama eine gute Musiklehrerin und verwandeln Kinder in kleine Komponisten.

Mit Hilfe der App Serie "Kreative Kinder, Komponieren Musik" , welche vom österreichischen Musiker Ernst Renner entwickelt wurde, können Kinder schon im Vorschulalter mit hunderten von verschiedenen Melodien experimentieren und davon lernen.
Sobald Ihr Kind Interesse an Musik zeigt, nehmen Sie sich Zeit um gemeinsam zu komponieren. In ein paar Jahren werden Sie froh sein es getan zu haben.

"As a radio announcer it is very important for me to have my daughter involved in the world of music. I just want music to mean as much to her as it does to me. So it made sense to start her in it as soon as possible. I found Little Composers and instantly knew it was for us! It really is brilliant and easy to follow along. I highly recommend it for you and your "little composer." ~ T. Wood

"Out of all the music education apps, this one is best for younger children or children with special needs."Heba Asmar
