Creative Children Compose Music just got a new feature added as shown in the app diagram below. This latest version is able to add rests to the melody which greatly enhances the composition experience as it mimics real songs more closely.
This app helps anyone to learn the basics of composition by implementing three easy rules.Fill the red containers by playing red keys
- Fill the red containers by playing red keys
- Fill the white containers by playing white keys
- End every composition with a C
How to edit the melody
Once a melody has been recorded, the app can play it so that you can listen. Sometimes, as we listen to our compositions, we feel that some changes would enhance the melody. Here is how you can edit and record over the old notes. We call the process “erase and replace” and works like this. Touch any container that you want to erase and then play a new key. As soon as you do that, the old note will be erased and replaced by the new one you just played. You can repeat this process as many times as you need to make the melody perfect.
Why you should use and learn this app
We are working on an advanced version which has many more features, an actual piano keyboard and instead of four bars, you can record and listen to 16 bars of music. There are many more options and for the first time, we are implementing a MENTOR mode to help you with getting the basic melody right.
Visit us on the Little Composers Facebook page to learn more about this new version.
Where can we get this app?
Creative Children Compose Music is available on iTunes, in the Windows App Store and you can instantly access the latest build on via www.littleComposers.com

About the app
Creative Children Compose Music (CCCM) marks a departure from color-coded keys because there are now much more powerful ways to learn how to play the piano. This improved method of learning is no longer based on following color patterns to play a song. Instead, we now teach children to compose their own music from the moment they start.
The difference is so amazing that we scrapped all plans to further develop apps which use color-coded keys as we did in the past.
From this point on, Little Composers is all about composing original music. This is done with a new generation of apps that rely on AITFM (artificial intelligence tweaked for music) which helps to follow the rules without actually knowing them. At first, this concept is somewhat complex but in practise, children just compose little melodies which sound right not only to them but also to the ones who listen.
We’ve removed everything that could hinder learning and what you see below is a finished composition made by a beginner who followed just three simple rules.
- Fill the red squares with red keys
- Fill the grey squares with grey keys
- Always end with a C note
Once a composition is finished, the composer can listen to the new masterpiece. Because this app is fully optimized for visual learners, even the playback button is animated. After listening, the little composer can take advantage of the powerful “erase and replace” mode. Erasing a recorded note and replacing it with a new note is very simple. Just touch the square which doesn’t sound right and play a new key. Done. Replacing just one note changes the melody and making one or two changes is enough to hear a completely different song.
Music theory for Little Composers
Ask piano students who had lessons for 5 or more years to compose you a little song and you will most likely get a shoulder shrug. Ask them to play something/anything and about half of them will give you an excuse why they can’t do so right now.
Why are most music students not taught about composing music? Imagine taking cooking classes and all you ever do is prepare food according to a recipe provided by the instructor. Sure, that way you can cook a few things but what about if you are really gifted? Who can you turn to when the inner genius hungers?
Music students face the same dilemma and sadly, some even quit because they find the lessons boring. Well, that will all song be a thing of the past because technology is replacing the old ways which, quite frankly, are ripe for retirement. Creativity is precious and the “Creative Children Compose Music” app is specifically designed to bring out every ounce of it. You, the parent can take advantage of this new technology by giving your child access to an iPad or iPhone and help them with installing the right apps. Games and the motor skill they are supposed to teach are “yesterday”. Useless entertainment for the bored. The children of tomorrow deserver better than wasting their precious years with killing time. Building up creativity and logic skills today can give them a much better life tomorrow.
The word is desperate for a new Steve Jobs or a mini Bill Gates and the economy isn’t doing well when products are designed by engineers who have never learned to think outside the box. The next generation will and can do better than we did and music is the new way to build a better future. Imagine that …

Little Composers publishes a very powerful learning system for young children who are not yet at the reading stage. Beginners start with PRE PiANO and once they understand how to compose and play their little melodies, they then move up to PRE PiANO KEYS which is more like a piano.
The best part about joining the Little Composers family is that you get access to much more than the apps. We also publish online music lessons and a special class that teaches note names and music notation.
Learn Note Names
Little Composers offers a complete learning experience and therefore offers a special class which teachers children everything they need to know in order to understand music notation. Any child who studies and takes the lessons serious gets a chance to complete an online quiz and upon passing the quiz, receives a beautiful certificate of completion.
If all of this could benefit your child then simply google “Little Composers” or visit our homepage and begin.
