What's it about?
This fairly easy-to-use tool lets kids create musical compositions. Starting with a blank score, kids use toolbar options to adjust time signature, tempo, key signature and choose from a wide range of musical symbols. A free account lets kids create up to 10 songs using 15 instruments. They can listen to their songs with the playback feature, keep pieces private, or share them publicly. A paid subscription allows for an unlimited number of pieces, up to 50 instruments, the option to share with individual users, an audio mixing panel, and the ability to annotate songs.
