How I Use It
Piano Melody Free is a fun, musical app that allows the user to play notes, or follow a specific song. It is not however, an educational app as it does not offer instruction, but rather a means to follow or practice instruction. I will use this with my own children, but not my students as I do not teach music, nor can they learn from the app.
My Take
Piano Melody Free offers various options to increase difficulty such as displaying note count, name on note, highlighting the note, etc. It does not offer instruction, but rather a means to practice the notes, or watch the song played. While I like the app and will use it, it is not very helpful in my current educational setting.
