For a limited time, Little Composers is giving away FREE premium memberships
If your child is interested in music and sounds then go to the Little Composers homepage which has a free demo of the software which teaches children how to compose and play their own music.
FREE Premium Membership
Premium members can access all the latest features of our apps and get access to the latest changes right away. Little Composers is giving away the first 500 memberships for free and those who register now can save US $ 12.00 which means that anyone has access to the advanced modules.
How do memberships work?
Anyone who visits the Little Composers website can open a demo version which we made available so that a parent can test the software functionality on their smartphones, tablets or computers. Once the app runs and the sound works, you can decide if you want to enrol your little one into the “Creative Children Compose Music” method which originates in Austria.
Creative Children Compose Music
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.
We have awesome apps, YouTube videos and Creative Children Compose Music which is the best ew music method for young children.
Can Little Children Compose?
Yes. PRE PiANO has a user interface so simple that a three-year-old can understand it within minutes and you, the mentor, instantly. Because PRE PiANO is for children of age three and up, symbols are used instead of piano keys and the same symbols also serve as notes. Easy to use up and down arrow keys can change the image and touching the image produces the right sound.
This simple recipe was first used to teach a little girl who wanted to have piano lessons at age three and since then, countless children have been introduced to music with the help of some elephants, giraffes and alligators.
How are the images related to the sounds?
The animals have a special meaning and teach much more than just composing and playing. But first, I’d like to explain the names of each animal. To the left is the bird and as you probably have already guessed, the bird represents the b key.
The camel the c key and so on. The elephant, fish, giraffe and alligator all are there because of their name.
But there is a little more than just the names.
The seven animals represent three groups. There are the three land animals which live on land and thus, are represented by the camel, elephant and giraffe. They also look to the right of the screen. The second group are the sea animals like the dolphin, fish and alligator. The sea animals look to the left of the screen which is very important later on when children begin to learn about chords.
The bird isn’t part of any group because it mostly lives in the air. Experienced music students refer to the b as the seventh step and the triad which is build on the seventh step is nether major nor minor.
Major and minor triads
Music becomes interesting when children start to experiment with harmony. Harmony, in simple terms, is adding a second or third note to a sound and by doing so, creating a richer listening experience. Music can become quite complex once we add harmony and therefore, PRE PiANO starts out with just the basics BUT, and this is very important to remember, it does lay the foundation for much more to come.
This unique and beautiful looking app was developed by music teachers and is based on many years of research. You will not find a better app to introduce your child to music. Once a child understands PRE PiANO, it is time to move up to CCCM which approaches composition and playing from a different angle but follows the same principals.
Little Composers develops free music apps for kids and invites those who enjoy playing to upload their songs for others to see and maybe even play.
Little Composers has a special app for children who are not yet at the reading stage. Think of this app as the first music teacher (more…)
