deceptive and anti-consumer

I was a previous user of this service until they went for a paid service model which I would have been fine with if they did not go and market this service with unlimited plays per day for free. when it is in fact, it is a pay to use past 3 plays daily which is blatantly deceptive marketing

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.
