Name this song is a piano-based game for musical children ages 6 and up.
How the Name this Song piano game works
Upon loading the piano game page, a piano keyboard gets loaded which can be used to play a given melody. The white keys have been marked up with the key name to help those who have never played the piano. This way, many children can participate and hopefully connect with the art of playing an instrument.
Here is a sample song:
E E E - | E E E - | E G C D | E - - - | F F F F | F E E E | E D D E | D - G - |
The above arrangement would play the famous Christmas song “Jingle Bells”.
Take a look at the piano keys and focus on the capital and lower case note names which were added to help those who are new to playing the piano.
How to play the Name this Song piano game
Once the game page loads, the visitors are encouraged to figure out the song by playing the letters below the keyboard on the included app. Once they play the melody right, they should be able to guess the song name and if they do, they can visit the Little Composers Facebook page and enter the title.
The first person who posts the correct song name wins and everytime that happens, Little Composers will publish a new song.
Update (April 1st, 2017)
The HTML5 app is now compatible with all devices
Web browsers have come a long way but are still very different from brand to brand. Because of that, the piano keyboard app is only available for desktop browsers. Mobile browsers running on a tablet should also work but smartphones are not yet able to resize the keys. We are aware and working on a solution so that children everywhere and on any device get a chance to take part. This has been fixed now.
We’d appreciate your help by letting us know if the piano keyboard worked on your device. If you are busy and don’t want to register in order to leave a comment below then simply fill out the Little Composers website feedback form
Every parent knows that posting data on the internet should be avoided which is why Little Composers doesn’t ask for your address or email when you post. Simply post the song name on the Facebook post link and that’s it. There is no charge to participate and the app is free.
If anyone every contacts you and asks for any kind of information or a payment then please forward the email to us and we will investigate the matter thoroughly.

Do I have to upload a photo of my child?
No. This step is optional. If you already have a ton of pictures of your child on Facebook or a similar website, then by all means, send us a small picture and we will gladly add it to the Famous Little Composers Gallery.
If your child answers the song name correctly and you want her/his picture added to the app page, then contact us to get the image upload link
