Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this music app is a great way to introduce toddlers to the piano. It plays 14 notes -- just enough for Mary Had a Little Lamb. Just make sure you don't have your iPhone on silent!

Is it any good?

QUALITY
 

This app displays piano keys that look and sound just like the real thing. Kids can run scales, form chords, even play Chopsticks. There's one octave composed of eight white keys and six black keys starting at middle C. The Sustain setting makes it sound like you're using the foot pedal.
