Part game and part storybook, this guided tour of jazz instruments is an engrossing, whimsical way to introduce kids to the instruments commonly used in jazz and the way they work together. The descriptions of each section of the band are especially well done: This is a music appreciation app that can help kids learn to listen critically not only for the sounds of the instruments, but also for how musicians work together. It's nice that kids can read the story on their own or hear it read aloud, and the app feels flexible and replayable, since kids can see and hear the instruments within the story, in the sandbox-style Learn section, or within the game. It would be even better if there were more opportunities for kids to hear how the instruments can work together, perhaps by letting kids hear multiple instruments at once rather than only one at a time. As it is, this is an approachable and amusing way to foster music appreciation in the youngest budding musicians.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
