The Canadian team behind Little Composers have created what may be the best music apps for younger kids, and they’re available on all tablets, smartphones, Macs and PCs.
You can now upload the compositions made with the free Little Composers Piano app to the Famous Little Composers Gallery. We will pick the best compositions and with your permission, feature your little composer right here and the official little composers website.
Every composition we publish receives a premium membership package which includes premium apps, certificates, creative challenges and one-on-one support. This special offer ends on December 31st.
To really understand something, you have to take it apart and put it together again. Every time you do, you learn something new.
So how do you take something like music apart? Well, it is easier than you think. With the help of the free Little Composers Piano app, visual learners can quickly build a nice melody starting with just a single note. And here is the best part. All one needs to know to get started are the first seven letters of the alphabet.
The Little Composers Piano lets children compose their own melody without taking years of music lessons.
Previously, this was not possible. Now it is!

NEW! Starting next week, we will feature select compositions and the little composer who made them. All children age 12 and younger are welcome to participate. Let's see who will be our next Little Composer of the month?
Q: How do I convert the letters to notes?
A: When you are done composing, turn off the RECORD button and press SONG. This brings up a new window where you can save your composition. Once you've done that, you can press SCORE to convert the letters to real music notes.
Q: Where can I learn more about composing music?
A: You can enroll in one of our online courses. The "Creative Children Compose Music" course starts on January 1st 2018. If you are interested, you should pre-register to reserve your seat. The course duration is 4 weeks, consists of 16 lessons and awards those who pass the final quiz with 70% or more a beautiful music certificate.
Q: My child is just starting. Do you have simpler apps?
Yes. If your child is still at the pre-reading stage, then start with minimal which is suitable for children ages 3 and up. After that, you should compose with the Pre Piano Keyboard app. See the footer for the app links. Once your child outgrows the Pre Piano Keyboard, she/he can easily move up to the Little Composers Piano.
"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." - Trish W.
