Creative Children Compose Music

Welcome to the official website for the Little Composers School of Music and Composition. Little Composers publishes the Creative Children Compose Music (CCCM) method which was copyright in 2013. CCCM originates in Austria and is available online. Our vision is to empower children to compose, edit and play their own music from the moment they start. Previously this was not possible. Now it is.

Free music apps for creative children

Want to give it a try? You can open any of our free educational music apps right in your web browser. If your child is still at the pre-reading stage, then we suggest that you start with miniMALS which uses symbols instead of piano keys.
If you are new here then we recommend that you take a quick look at the miniMALS app info page which has useful information that helps you to get up and running quickly.

Instant access. No registration required.


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”.

Pre Piano Keyboard

Once the miniMALS app has been outgrown, the students can move up to the next level and continue composing with the Pre Piano Keyboard. At this stage, the animals are no longer necessary and instead, we begin to use the real note names.

A color-coded keyboard helps our little composers make more advanced compositions and a short video explains the user interface and features.

What happens when a student masters the Pre Piano Keyboard and wants to not only compose but also save, print and publish a composition? Our most advanced app, the Little Composers Piano can do all of that and more. To get this amazing app, students are required to register and enroll in at least one of the intermediate composition classes

online music certificates for kids

Classes start in November

The online classes here at the Little Composers School of Music and Composition reward those who study the curriculum and pass the quizzes successfully with beautiful music certificates.

I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for the patterns in music and all the arts are the keys to learning.
