How I Use It
I'm testing this app out for my college course and I'm in love! I'm impressed with how fun and engaging this app is. Having to create your avatar already sparked my interest and I can see students loving to choose what theirs would look like. I can see myself using this in a lesson and hooking it up to a bigger screen so the class can follow along. This app was very detailed in how to hold the recorder, how to blow air into the instrument and where to place your fingers etc. This app could also be used for students to follow along at home as well for practice. This would be a fun learning activity for beginners with the guidance of the teacher of course. So far I do not have any dislikes.
My Take
As I stated above, this is the coolest app I have seen in a while. I hope they have app like these for band instruments. This app is like having free private lessons from your phone. I was hooked from when I opened the app. It was very easy to follow along with. This could be a great app for grades 3 and up, possibly grade 2. So far there are no dislikes. Lots of fun games on the app. It's free to try it out and then it's $3.99 to continue the full lesson.
