It’s never too early to start your spawn off with musical instruments. Pitch Painter from Morton Subotnick for iPad is a good one to put next to the crib. Honestly I’ve downloaded this and will probably use it on a song or too (not kidding). $2.99 in the App Store now.
“Morton Subotnick is one of the pioneers of electronic music and multi-media performance. He is an innovator in works involving instruments and interactive computer music systems. His work Silver Apples of the Moon has become a modern classic, and in 2010 was entered into the National Registry of Recorded works at the Library of Congress, which selected only 300 recordings in total for this esteemed archive. Subotnick is also a pioneer in offering creative musical tools to young children. He has authored the educational CD-ROM series Making Music which has been widely used by parents and educators to let children experiment with the fundamentals of pitch, rhythm, sounds and styles of music. Pitch Painter is his latest endeavor in utilizing mobile technology to ignite the musical creativity of children.” – appadvice.com
