A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this website.
Kids can learn to amp up their music practice by organizing everything in one place. They'll get social by sharing recordings with peers and teachers, and accept feedback that'll help them improve skills. Recording a practice session will help kids assess their own performance and figure out where to make changes; and when they get it perfect, there's proof! Chromatik is a place kids can learn to persevere, committing to their music practice in a fun, interactive way.
Chromatik gives kids autonomy over their music practice; getting to socialize with friends and teachers about what they're working on is empowering and adds fun to a sometimes boring after-school chore.
Products & Purchases
In the Chromatik Store, you can purchase sheet music for your chosen instrument from popular artists like Taylor Swift to Mancini classics, for about $1.99 each.
Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
For kids who don't want to fuss with old-fashioned paper sheet music anymore, Chromatik could be just the thing. It's pretty basic (you upload music, record yourself playing it, then share with others), but good for serious music students who need to get organized. It all depends on how motivated your kids are; if you have to push them to practice, you may have to give some extra guidance to start them uploading sheet music into Chromatik. But once they get going, it could be a great motivator, and at worst, all those scattered papers will at least get organized online. It also has some fun perks (that you have to pay for, of course); after practicing Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, your kid could reward themselves with a download of the sheet music to a Bruno Mars or Rihanna tune. However, once you've logged into the site, it's hard to find any help if you get confused.
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.
